Butterfly. A Poem.

Back and forth, flying around,

Way up high or near the ground,

I do know, where e’er you’re found,

Wondrous beauty does abound.

Fluttering by, here and there,

Sometimes dozens fill the air,

Colors bright with so much flair,

No finer coat could you wear.

Sitting, watching, as I do,

Colors seen in every hue,

Even when just one or two,

Vibrant beauty comes from you.

    • Once, forever  and for all ,

      We all have a call ,

      To play a role ,

      Whether big or small , short or tall ,

      Be and do  the best you can

      to just play that role ,

      To grow more and more ,

      In the path of love roll and roll ,

      Love is beyond control ,

      To ride the  waves of  sea hall,

      Do  rise up even after  you  fall ,

      reborn with the divine , you recall…

      Transcending your body  ,

      You have a spirit  and a soul,

      In dark  times,   all would  console …

      Tap into the  infinity of God to recall, 

      So that walls of prisons shall fall,

      Apart To bring liberation , 

      eternally  after all , …

      Decode and Reporgram the matrix  ,

      For justice and awareness to install ,

      Nourish  the forests  in one land and all ,

      For Becoming    better as a whole ,

      drops of rain would  gather and scroll  ,

      Blessings brought  to us as   a waterfall, …

      Be grateful for all that is all in all ,

      No matter how large or small ,

      Be it in the spring or the fall     ,

      All could shine brightly ,  completely  sacredly and  whole ,

      Once , forever and overall …

      ( console means help )

  1. Lovely poem! 🦋 I wish a butterfly would show up on my balcony. I haven’t seen them yet this summer. They’re so beautiful and delicate, but I still don’t like insects. I guess they’re an exception. 🦋

    • Thanks Hilary! Yes, even though a lot of people don’t like insects, butterflies are usually an exception, just something about them, their beauty and being so delicate, that makes them attractive to people. How do you feel about caterpillars? 😃😺🌞🦋🦋


    • No, not really, they are around all summer, starting in early May and right into September, some years into October though that is rare.


  2. Butterflies are so beautiful ! We have had an influx of Monarch butterflies this year…your poem describes them so fittingly ! ☕️☕️🦋🦋☕️☕️
