Give yourself permission to
explore your desires whether
or not you express any of
them out loud

Given a peek into balance of
nature surrounded by shades
of green I found wonderment
of my growth for living love
includes all critters great or
small deserving their fair
share of existence

Some just need to be left alone
to domesticated are
some that we just need to be
responsible for their care

Discover yourself through their
eyes for the betterment of all
and receive acumen blessings in
love to complete circle in return

(c) Follow that Butterfly

I'm sure we would all like to be as carefree as your butterfly. It would be a neat trick....and all that exploring of desires. I don't recall many poems that touch on caring for domesticated animals; you always find a new angle.

Keats had a way of getting out of himself and into another sentient being... he called it "negative capability" because it involved the capability of negating oneself to become absorbed in another's frame of mind or perspective... you've captured that sense well here, dear Vivian...

This is so true Vivian, we must honor nature and
learn from her giving respect to all creatures
of all kinds. Caring for those we have chosen
to domesticate. I harm no thing, I fear no thing
I respect instead.

Beautiful message for all to learn from

Love and Light

"Some just need to be left alone to survive"

Yep. that's a fact. Lovely poetry with a message as clear as a run bell.

I love to follow butterflies. And I prefer to leave wild things wild and not even try to domesticate animals as our slaves.

Reviewed by Amber Moonstone 8/11/2012
Yes another indication that we must live in the moment and be aware of our destiny...

Lovely as always to read you...

Peace, love and light,
