Wild Butterfly

Egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, butterfly

This natural magic of transformation

Can happen to you too. Time makes you

More beautiful. Human metamorphosis

Liberates souls. Such a rare achievement

Requires an emptying of the mind and a deep (and so painful) compassion.

Defeat your expectations; free yourself and you will see

The passing beauty of a butterfly. 

Butterflies live for about a week

Butterflies taste with their feet.

Butterflies do not have mouths.

Butterflies need the warmth of the sun to fly by.

Butterflies can see red, yellow, and green.

A butterfly's skeleton is on the outside of her body. 

The wings of a butterfly are transparent.

Tiny scales give their wings colour.

The souls of saints fly by metempsychosis

Into the bodies of butterflies

As they flutter hour after hour from flower to flower

Tasting the nectar through their proboscis

Remembering the caterpillar's cocoon

And speculating upon the depths and heights of eternity.

A way a lone a last a loved ►
