A beautiful, very enjoyable poem. I like the idea of the butterfly being imprisoned until it comes out of the cocoon – and then the notion that however beautiful something is, all things must come to an end.

Kite Dreams


The butterfly dazzles
And finds her hermitage
On an unruffled leaf
When unforgotten
Are the times when she was chained
And imprisoned until
She came of age

She rises and falls
Flutters, dances and beautifies
An otherwise mundane ambient
And finds a heavenly dose
Of nectar on the base
Of a flower, until she meets
Her nemesis – a bird’s beak
And in that moment
All the glory is lost forever

After all
Any beauty – however spectacular – is transient
Even love that binds and blinds
To one earthly creature
For the very best of things
Are bound by ephemeralities

So little butterfly
Flap your wings and fly away
To “Carpe Diem”
