For AM

Wrapped in silken binding threads,

encased in slumber’s skin,

Then B-U-R-S-T-I-N-G forth

in splendid color--

shedding the old skin


Constricting threads that once held bound

the glorious light within;

no longer hold a shred of power,

for the butterfly

has wings


And freely now, with wings of color,

she flies upon the wind…

stopping here to lift and lighten--

sharing beauty

with her wings

Dear Cryssa, here is an example of a living creature born from the residue of the first spark of light which stays forever alive and multiplies itself constantly. This is one of the reasons why I like every creature. Love Emile

We all are kind of a butterfly, the cocoon that wraps us is the first thing we shed before flying to the light.
