Poem: What I Learned From Butterflies
What I Learned From Butterflies
Along my way, the butterflies whispered to me
About the nature of their lives. They said,
Everything changes in its own time,
As predestined, pre-ordained,
This is God’s supreme mystery.
Holding on to transient things, is futile.
Through pain, death, there is transformation,
And new life, in new forms,
Guided by memories of the old.
Everything needed for this journey, already exists within.
Humility to it, acceptance of its divine plan,
As manifested by example set long ago,
Begets total grace, unequaled radiance,
Illuminating each step, each incandescent flight,
Making each singular destiny…endless.
I thanked the butterflies for their lessons,
Which permeate my life with light,
And with peace.
