Watch The Butterfly - Poem by Nancy D Warnick

Your metamorphosis sleep is ended
Break out of your cocoon, so slow
Spread your bright-colored, delicate wings
Fly into the gentle winds that blow
This magical insect, reborn in beauty.
Fluttering here, there and everywhere
Feasting on nectar, the blossom gave
Sucking into your delicate feeding tube
The sweet substance you so crave
This magical insect, reborn in beauty
As transient as the clouds above
Traveling far and wide, in flight
Meandering to the mountain top
Using your own fragile might
This magical insect, reborn in beauty.
Watch the butterfly and remember
Your vulnerability and fragileness
We are not insignificant insects
Oh! Mortals of short-lived existence
Ye, can be reborn in beauty too.
