The Butterfly Effect Set …




A butterfly flutters its wings, a soft change in the wind

Time stops not for me, or for any who contend

The ripple touches a tree, but to what is its end

Antagonist unknown as the plot to whom listens

A leaf falls, yet green as the life it enthralls

Lightning soon follows, to the tree, earth calls

Harbored within rotten, shade of discourse

It soon decomposes, the breeze moved on.

The birth of a forgotten child, female, tossed to the world

Her first breath absorbed, taints her soul

Soon incubates inside, for jade fathoms the girl

Her last retort of deceptive talk, residual.

The deep breath received, the now quaint young man

Exhaled, all is left is his reluctant stand

Loads up the double barrel, signs off his letter and

A loud boom, then smoke exits the window, struck again.

The ripple searches, stronger in tune the plot thickens

Across the oceans, in varied angles it quickens

Upon its quake, people breathing in the famine

Many fall breathless; can you see what’s happening?

For the dark shroud follows this wanton air

Started from beauty then birth of despair

Such war remains, the sick and dead don’t care

The red, black, and pale horse, lie in this Zephyr.

Then a fist, stunned frozen the mist in manifest

The tryst of three horses resists this conquest

As the white cloud, releases its bow, sent pierced

Strikes down the wanton air, now diminished.

Apocalypse now, apocalypse now finished

Consumed by War, Famine and Death..Victory ends this.

I loved the poem, you always had the ability to like create things images that turns into a story or a movie, that's great all in itself, but also like transfers into reality

I like this poem, it remain in my mind the story of Rudyard Kipling about "the butterfly that stamped"... Not the same story, but a big imagination. Bravo...

Time processing pieces always capture my attention. You are the king of imaginative scenarios. The way in which you unfold the story is thrilling, from beginning of life to its end...You are amazing, indeed. You are an altair ;)

well thank you very much reader =) good comment

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
