25-3The Butterfly – Copy – Copy


The Butterfly

All I do, is I lie here, day in and day out, night in and night out. I know there is something I must do but I am so small and helpless in this time of my life. I dream of light in this dark. I smell the most (1) incredible smells, perfume from the flowers, the damp of wood and the smell of rising sap. This intoxicates me and mixed with the funk from the animals, I am twitching in anticipation; something BIG is going to happen.

I can see the birds looking for me, alas and alack, I am an entrée in the bug world. Hey, finally some movement, I am itching all over, wait one darn minute I have these teeny tiny, really tiny feet and legs. What am I supposed to do, ahh, Crawl .. Move up and Down .. I get it. Is that a Leaf, I see before me, oh leaf, I have to eat you, and it is my duty, my right, my privilege… oh you are so scrumptious! I have to eat everything in sight.. It seems I can’t stop eating. Crawl and Crawl, Chew and chew and chew. Burp! Ah Good, I feel so sleepy.. So sleep I must..

I sleep. I dream of flight, of wings so light. Of floating on a breeze, a clouds delight.. I am in flight.

Wait, I am in flight, it is not a dream, I am real, REAL .. A thing of rare beauty, a flower without a stem, floating on air.

I am a Butterfly!
