Realms Of The Butterflies - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

butterfly, are your
stripes and shades
a map to paradise?
if that is so, i am
already in one

so serene, so quiet
your gentle adventure
enchanting colours
entrance me, transport me
tranquilly into another realm

the angels, do they fly like you?
so effortlessly, forever carrying a paradise

is paradise filled with honey? sweet
success for your rendevouz with blooms

is your caterpillar a testimony that
one grows in and out of realms?

so softly, quietly, you fly off a rainbow
leaving that little monster
you once were fluttering on trees
