The Butterfly

Reborn through crushing pain,
a stark metamorphosis occurs,
look, a fragile beauty is born!

See the butterfly cruise the wind,
flitting from branch to tree,
chasing and ardently wooing flowers!

In the shortness of its existence,
it roams freely, giving of itself,
and life-inducing succour!

Spreading enchantment with its shimmer,
quenching the thirst of lost souls,
is it a celestial being, I wonder?

  1. B-E-A-UTIFULLY worded sweetheart Prem...

    "Small is beautiful" It is amazing how such small wonders in their short span of life swathe us in abundant joy..and they are blissfully unaware of the joy they generously exude.. celestial doubt..
