She was in her cocoon 
A little caterpillar
Waiting to be molded
In beautiful butterfly
Delicate yet robust
And when that day arrives
She files to zeniths
Glides in gardens
Nurturing a new world
From one place to another
Spreading happiness and joy
The fragrance of flowers blooms more
Her colorful wings glisten
Magnificent she seems
Just like a fairytale played
But reality hits
The world is brutal,
not delightful as it seems
Everybody wants to catch her
Admire her yet want to capture
Make her captive
She asks why?
Existence is difficult.

  1. The world is brutal indeed especially to something as beautiful, graceful and fragile as a butterfly. Beautifully written, Era. Glad to see you back. I’ve missed you and your posts. How have you been?
