Love's a Butterfly



Love's a Butterfly


Always Resilient
A strong yet fragile wonder
Love is Beautiful

Hues so colorful
As wings of a butterfly
With Love there is Hope

Gracefully soaring
Changing metamorphosis
Love brightens the soul

Embracing your heart
Soft wings tickle your spirit
Love makes you smile

Caressing your life
Encouraging you to grow
Love's protective wings

Becoming New Life
Compassionate forgiveness
Love is eternal

Glistens in the sun
Full of possibilities
Love's a Butterfly

Nina, gorgeous what you just wrote to me. Absolutely gorgeous. I'll take my cookies out of the oven, eat one or two, and come back to read what you've shared.

Nina, beautiful words. Love can be light like this. Love can be much heavier in the belly though, too. It can thrust you against walls and urge you to spontaneous combustion, or at least it can for me.

You're a joy, Nina.

As you have beautifully painted here Nina, Hope has finally arrived. Hope had drawn to us many possibilities and potentiality. So Now, we can move from Hope into a sense of Being; Creating the new Colour Combinations that you do so well.

You have a gift of expressing things we all feel but don't always know until we read the words of gifted poets and explainers of life. Thank you for sharing your gift.

As usual, your beautiful writings soften my soul... and thank you so much for my birthday poem! You're a very special lady.

Stoneweaver said...

Oh lovely. For me butterflies symbolise innocent happiness - and freedom. And that's what love is too, isn't it?

Should it be 'Embracing your heart'?

SarahA said...

This is very clever. How each seperate in their own right and together collectively.Yes, I am thinking Love IS like a Butterfly.Beautiful,you.
