Life as a Butterfly
As the cool breeze wishes to blow us away into the distance,
Like debris into a great storm.
Hanging on to this one single leaf with all my might and all my desire to live
As this is all there is and nothing more…..no more.
I look around through the eyes of this butterfly and see you all there,
Thousands and thousands of you beautiful butterflies;
Red and black and golden, green with blue stripes
An ocean of infinite colour and elegance,
All holding on with your wings braced by the breeze, resisting, resisting.
The fragility to be seen in the sheer determination to hang on, not to let go, to let go,
Until the breeze turns into a beautiful warm wind that gradually lifts us, first one leg and then another, then away
Up into the sky, to become one with nature and her plan,
Following the winds’ journey to the end with her and not against,
Every part of me allowing the wind to carry me to my destiny.
Memories of resistance on that single leaf are now into the distance as I enjoy
Nature‘s ride to the fullest.
