Common Blue Butterfly

Caterpillars marked like an Aztec design

Slowly journeying up the flower’s stem

Ever undulating towards her sacred shine

Cocooning in the shelter of change’s realm

To her sure fate, she must try to resign

She emerges from her death transformed

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Really LOVED this one, Carol. Very cool! I could never do what you do because I just flow, not even thinking how many words, how many sentences, etc. I do however am very aware of rhythm. Rhyming necessarily not all the time, but the beat, oh yes, very important to me. Then there are my writings that just want to be written as they want. LOL Ya never know what comes out of my hand or head. Not even me. 🙂 Beautiful job, my friend!! ❤

      1. I have music in my blood so when I hear the words they usually have a beat. I tend to work that way. Rhythm to me makes a poem so powerful. Yes you are a poet but just in a different way. 🙂 That’s all!!! 😉

  3. This is absolutely profound! Especially loved these lines:

    “Cocooning in the shelter of change’s realm.
    to her sure fate, she must try to resign..
    She emerges from her death transformed.”

    Beautifully written ❤ ❤ ❤
