Fly Away: A Poem

Updated on August 15, 2011
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

      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. :)

      I thought this is what you were referring to, anyway.

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

      This is a good thought.

      Blessings.

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

      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'.

      Blessings.

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

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

      Blessings.

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