The Butterfly Sleeps

The Butterfly sleeps
Safe in a flower
Concealed in its beauty
Hidden from sight
Delicate wings
Natural wonder
Symbol of Hope
Awed by its splendor
Feeds on sweet pollen
Lives in the meadow
Can fly up to Heaven
Hide in the shadows
Causes no harm
Delivers great joy
Delicate creation
Beauty to behold

Death of a Butterfly
Watch how she sleeps
Concealed in a flower
Hidden from sight
Delicate wings
Natural wonder
Symbol of Hope
Awed by its splendor
Eternal sleep
In sweet pollen
Died in the meadow
Soared on to Heaven
Carried by the breeze
Received with Joy
Heavenly being
Beauty to behold
Eternal peace
Immortal soul

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.
