On the wings of a butterfly.

I saw a butterfly today. It was a beauty of creation,
With golden wings and polka dots
All spattered, mirror image.

It did not stay, but bid me say 'farewell my fluttering beauty'.
It's been a while, since I saw one
Nigh well for near ten years.

And as with this experience, adieu as well to our years,
For time flies out of one's window
Through laughter, love and tears.

So goodbye my golden belle, go fulfill the Almighty's plan,
For though you're a little insect,
You too are in good hands.

We are all a fluttering butterfly, faltering in the winds of time.
Only deeds will be remembered,
Nothing else what I call mine.

And I saw a butterfly today....

About this poem:
I just had the uncomfortable thought that I hadn't seen a butterfly in a long long time, and I felt sad.

Enjoyed reading this poem, I recently had two white butterflies on my window sill and back garden but must admit it had been a while too, love butterflies they represent a new beginning to me.

I love butterflies! I always see a yellow one when I visit my Mom's grave. Also, the park I walk in everyday I see them all the time - especially around clover. White ones, blue ones, yellow ones, monarchs. My little messengers from Heaven. heart wings

I watched 2 cabbage whites dancng together and thought, 'Hey ho' - then a few yards away a solitary butterfly and I felt a pang of sympathy for him/her all alone.

Beauty should not make you sad. It gives you joy and peace I have butterflies in my window but in arts crafted. I have also seen them fly sometimes when I take a walk. They are the Creator's beauty as mother nature.Enjoyed your write and thanks for sharing the simple things in life that comes our way.SMwave

My beloved aunt told me that every time I saw a white butterfly it would be her spirit on the breeze..........she's been gone some years now but I always remember her humour and zany approach to life every time I see a butterfly. Thanks for sharing this poem. It's beautiful. Well done
