Butterfly

A Poem by Carlos Lorenzo Estrada

I don't see them much anymore and I miss them, for they are made from the things that dreams are made from.

Butterfly


by


Carlos Lorenzo Estrada 


"Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?"-Frida Kahlo



In powdered wings which fill the air

Drifting lonely; captured stare


Framed in patterns arresting eye

Delicate creature rising high


Between the space which binds us to

Planted feet that wish of you.


What secrets rest upon those wings

Aileron flight which rise and sing


Colored patterns upon your silk

Immortal beauty of your ilk


Enchanted by the dreams of you

Ascending up the endless blue


So let hearts aspire; wander high

On those wings; oh Butterfly...

So let hearts aspire; wander high
On those wings; oh Butterfly...

Thus is such a beautiful
piece. of poetry..the
butterfly with its delicate
wings and beauty in flight
a serene sight to behold
how high they fly free gracefully

Nice Work Carlos

An exquisite ode to the butterfly, Carlos. They've come a long way from their cocoon, and the revelation is as spiritual as it is renewing.

That is the key - to value that which is such a wonderful sight to behold and reflect on. This is a wonderfully, vivid poem Carlos. Nature is truly the reigning beauty of this realm :) I haven't seen a butterfly in about a year actually, made me think - they seem less these days...
