Morning Musings – 90 Days of Inspiration: Day 4


The Butterfly

Metamorphosis is a significant change
In the course of one’s life, personality
Or way of thinking.

The caterpillar, through the chrysalis,
And emergence as a butterfly,
It is the greatest change in the animal kingdom.

Mimic nature, as a mirror of
Who we are at the core.
A butterfly represents the process
Of change towards freedom of the soul.

Cocoon is a time of rest,
As transformation takes its time
To build the strength to break free.

And contemplation is the prelude to
An extraordinary event giving space
To let go and simply be.

Break out of the cocoon,
Determination and perseverance
Gives the power to move through the
Incubation that is left behind.

Of color give flight,
To that which has been hidden.
In a mesmerizing explosion of
Beauty, Luminescence Essence,
And an aura of totally free expression.

We watch in wonder, the exquisite
And beautiful dance of the butterfly.
One cannot help but wonder,
How, as humans, we can achieve the
Same voyage of the inevitable
Magnificence of a metamorphosis.

Butterfly has emerged in all its splendor,
Overcoming the struggles and strife,
Of a seemingly impossible task.

From where we are to
The next stage of life,
Is the path of change for
Growth and expansion.

A new foundation has been laid, giving way for another process and a new level of self-transformation.

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
