I let my hand rest

In the palm of your hand

With complete trust,

You won’t crush the butterfly

That is my free spirit.
Author's Notes:
My try at a Tanka form.  The modern version doesn't have to have the 5-7-5-7-7 syllable count.

A butterfly is a wonderful way to visualize trust..It is a delicate creature, so easily destroyed...len
