Today I saw an amazing collection of pictures of butterflies posted by Njari Johnson in Facebook. My home is called The Butterfly House because of the many butterflies we have year round. The beautiful butterfly is a symbol of joy (Beatitude is defined as exalted joy; Supreme Blessedness), and transformation (because if the various stages it goes through.) I am inspired by Njari’s post to create a series of poems, wise sayings, etc. around the theme of butterflies. I invite any of you who would like to join Njari and me in this challenge to do so. There are no “rules,” be a butterfly–free to write as you please.
Today I am a caterpillar,
too many legs, confined to
leaves. How I long to fly.
Why can’t I be beautiful
like a butterfly? Oh, impatient
caterpillar, be who you are today;
be a joyful caterpillar.
