Conversation with a Butterfly

A butterfly flirted 
Into my view,
Fluttering her lashes
Of yellow and blue.

Diverting from
Her dainty task.
I had to know,
I had to ask.

How is there room 
In your tight cocoon
For colorful wings,
And other things?

I have no wings!
She insisted and implored. 
I see no wings,
But I can see yours!

        ------ G. Hill

Butterflies can’t see their wings. 
They can’t see how truly beautiful they are . . . . but everyone else can. 

 . . . .  People are like that as well.
                    – Naya Rivera

Your wings already exist. Today is a good day to fly. Find your soul in the sky.
