Fly Away: A Poem

Source


Your quiet ways, my furrowed brow,
Your willing smile,
I'm sure I'll get done with this work somehow,
But it's stacked up so high, oh what a pile.

But you're my little butterfly,
A wonder amongst the mundane,
There's no need to ask why,
I welcome any distraction that keeps me sane.

Vibrant colors set against a world of gray
You give me more than hope this dismal day
If you've been transformed, then why can't I?
Just grab my hand and we'll fly into that golden sky

Reminds me of the song 'I'll fly away', sung years ago by Jim Reeves...

YW :) I guess this is why a huge proportion of tattoos are in a butterfly design, but anyway.

I just noticed the word 'vibrant' again, above: 'vibrant colors'. One of your favorite, recurring words!

Blessings.

That makes sense, because I love bright colors. It's interesting that you notice these things. lol

I was just re-reading the poem: transformed is not only relevant to butterflies but also Paul uses it in the New Testament, doesn't he? 'Be not conformed...but transformed'.

Yes, there's also the subject of being a new creation.

As in: 'If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation'?

This is a good thought.

I was really expressing how the people in our lives help us to get through the day and give us hope. I like your interpretation as well. :)
