BUTTERFLIES

Butterflies fly in the sky, bringing joy and beauty to all those watching nearby.

Butterflies grow from a cocoon leaving a caterpillar in a gossamer womb.

Butterflies alight here and there. Butterflies are everywhere.

I feel like the butterfly emerging from the cocoon.

I am ready not a moment too late or too soon.

I am ready to share who I am with the world.

Share my experiences with any and all. Ready to heed a poet's call.

I don't have to worry if I will freefall.

I have wings that will catch me and carry me to heights no one can see. 

I am out of sight but not out of mind.

My words will live on through time in verse and rhyme.

I will continue to grow more beautiful through the lessons I learn and the passage of time.

As long as we are living transformation is always possible. Just like me you are changing and blossoming everyday in your own special way.

i loved the metaphoric way the butterfly developed. comparing yourself to a butterfly was a visual delicacy to read. great job

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
