Are You A Butterfly?

  • How does one become a butterfly” she asked pensively

    “You must want to fly so much you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.”

    “You mean die?”

    “Yes and no,” he answered. “What looks like you will die, but what’s really you will still live”

    I love butterflies. They represent rebirth and rejuvenation. Butterflies represent freedom and courage...the kind of courage it takes to transform one's self and create a meaningful and happy life.

    "Once you are a butterfly, you can really love - the kind of love that makes a new life."

    We are all interconnected in miraculous ways. Each of us, through our words and actions creates a ripple effect that resonates through the world. We make a choice every day in what we wish to present to the world and in how we will live our lives. Without courageous caterpillars, we wouldn't have butterflies, without butterflies, we would not have flowers. We need one another. By sharing our love and doing our part we can all make the world a better place. With a little courage and faith, we, too, can become butterflies.

  • You changed me

    in beautiful ways

    Flying high

    my wings opened to wondrous new possibilities

    Possibilities I had left to die

    Dead roses

    Dead dreams

    Through you

    I learned of things I had never known

    Life's fresh breath

    blowing light and love

    on me

    The world became bigger

    for me

    I became

    more open

    more loving

    more honest

    more Me

    Finding you

    completed me

    Awakened by chance?


    through destiny's fate

    I discovered



    desires long buried

    The girl who once was

    the lost girl

    was found

    I welcomed home my old friend

    I remember you! I remember you!

    And shed a tear of gratitude

    She walks with me


    Even as I walk away

    your imprint


    in my heart


    And all in the world


    just as it should be

    just as it has been written
