Butterfly Trapped In a Jar


I once had a dream that there was a beautiful blue butterfly locked in a jar that couldn't fly.
She felt her life passing by!
She would try to fly around and around, spinning hitting the thick glass jar.
Sadly looking out as far as her eyes would take her.
Feeling her life, as a quick blur!
She would sadly sigh!
All out of breath,
She felt death.
Close by.
Wondering why!
She always looked pass the jar.
Feeling life!
One day, she awoke and the lid was finally off.
With her little ones' tucked underneath her, she flew and flew, until she could no longer see the jar that kept her, from feeling life.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
