Take wing –
Take heed –
Find the wind that leads you forward –
Take care –
Take stock –
Your journey ahead is marked by what it is you have left behind you after all this time –
Hardly worn yet battered by the breezes, shaken yet never torn from where it stood among the trees –
You emerged anew as a child born again –
Take flight –
Take care –
Be gone now and follow the slow arc of the Earth towards your destination-
Take wing –

I stooped to spy
And stuck a thistle
In my thumb.
Beheld mine eye,
The insect guy,
Then gave a whistle,
Thumb felt numb.
In stumbling, I
Impaled my thigh,
Upon the thistle,
Then, my bum.
And then did die,
From toxic thistle,

I love this. The laughter it prompted and visual effects generated in my overactive imagination were joy to my ribs.
I was looking around,
And found something flying,
Something fluttering around.
It was an orange butterfly!
Like a little girl,
I chased it
And saw where it went.
After the orange butterfly
Flew high in the sky,
I wondered about that butterfly,
About its life,
How it all grows
To being a pretty one.
I also realized that everything changes,
Not only in the butterfly,
But also in me.
Are changes good?
Are changes bad?
I have to find out for myself.
I didn’t go for a metamorphosis theme, or talk about the beauty of nature. I took my inspiration from Ray Bradbury’s story – “A Sound of Thunder”.
The Butterfly Effect
If a fluttering wing
Can change a timeline —
Or treading on a
The course of humanity
Imagine what a
Word can do.
promises of spring
on a wing and a prayer
whispering hope, love

is it ok to giggle w this one? as a compliment of course!
I JUST bought a pair of butterfly earrings, so I’m doubly inspired:
discs of ethereal yellow
dangle from my ears
etched with wings of delicate shape that might flutter away
