Butterly Wings

Butterly Wings

A Poem by Patricia Wedel





When my time comes to leave this world 

my spirit will fly on Butterfly wings...   

I will rise with the Sun 

and sing on the breeze of 

blossoming trees... 

I will ride rainbows through 

Jupiter and Mars and gather 

lavender stars with diamonds 

all aglow in the atmosphere... 

I will stop for Tea at the 

Milky Way Cafe where retired writers 

of romantic persuasion pen poems of

everlasting bliss and ecstasy in flights 

that defy explanation but paint moments 

where memories of past blend with the 

present in orchestrated  sonnets...

A beautiful hope and wish for the hereafter....certainly a wondrous voyage that would be!

If we all truly could choose our own hereafter voyage, unlimited by any constraints and just at the will of our own imaginations, then i am sure most of us would choose such a voyage as you have so poetically described.

Some lovely snippets of internal rhyme in this one , Pat, giving the entire piece a dreamlike, drifting quality fitting for its theme.

A very lovely musing. Wishful and graceful from beginning to end.

A lovely write Pat, what a nice way to go and catch up! Knowing my luck if I were a butterfly I’d end up in a birds beak for supper!

Dear lady Pat, you've converted death's often sad flight into one of gentle beauty - your words are truly butterfly kisses flitter-fluttering over glorious rainbows! You're always able to make even dull, rainy or snowy cold days into Summer delight! Thank you!

There is a rapturous victory over those cold edges of death rising from your journey of words. One feels the softness of the butterfly wings, yet their strength as well in carrying you across the universe in sweet songs.
