Butterfly Tattoo

Butterfly etched in the small of her back
Resting on her hide in the sisterhood of ink
A physical stamp of the human soul
A portal releasing the essence of a spirit
Free to blossom and draw in the energies of life
A talisman of power and freedom
Creating and harvesting new life

Butterfly Butterfly

Butterfly butterfly
Land where you will
On petal of flower
And stay oh so still
Till a breeze lifts you up
To fly off and play
In the cup of more nectar
A garden away

Childlike Eyes

Be Like A Butterfly

Be like a butterfly
Wings outstretched
Taking to the wind
Fluttering aerodynamically
Intent on love
With wings of an angel

Butterfly Camouflage

The names of several butterflies are hidden in this poem.  See if you can spot them all.  How many are there?  Can you name them? 🙂

I dream that I’m a butterfly
So free to flit on air
And sway upon the open breeze
With very little care

I preen my feathers; call them wings
Like peacock in display
A purple emperor flying forth
A top the trees in May

In trance I have a fantasy
That I’m invincible
Commander in chief of the wind
Monarch or principal

My quest to rule the nectar dales
Of amazon delight
And hide by camouflage mottled
In browns and yellows bright

Like tortoiseshell to match the earth
Or silver studded blue
To sail on waves across the sea
Red admiral in view

The Bee and The Butterfly

Said the bee to the butterfly
“How far up can you fly?”
Said Butterfly to Bee
“I can fly the highest! You just see!”

Said Bee “I think that you cannot!”
“Oh ha ha!” Butterfly said “Have you forgot
I can fly so high I’d reach that cloud!
Would you try, or are you too proud?”

And Bee retorted with a snort
“It’s easy see, I can and ought
To prove you wrong dear butterfly
‘Cos I’ll fly highest in the sky!”

“Let’s have a race and see who wins
I’ll beat you see!”  Said Bee with grins
Across his face that said I dare
You to try and fly right up there!

“Okay you’re on, I’ll do it see”
Said Butterfly to haughty Bee
I’ll flap my wings and off I go
“Come catch me now you so and so”

And so they both flew up and up
Not looking down, they didn’t stop
Until the air got frosty cold
And then they didn’t feel so bold

But neither would give up and say
We’ve gone too far – we’ve lost our way
Instead they pressed on to the stars
To the planets – from Earth to Mars

Intent on winning each one flew
On and on into the blue
Determined then to win the race
To fly so high and not lose face

And even now, so it’s been told
They’re still in flight from days of old
For never did they each return –
A lesson for us all to learn!
