Monarchs and a wish ~ a poem

Updated on May 27, 2015

I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.

Zhuangzi

Fluttering flights of glitters

Across the shiny meadow

And valleys of whispering winds

Till the foothills of wistfulness

Wings of dreams monarch

We carry with us...

From there to here

Till then to now

World of divine splendour

Touch of satin fervour

Bright yellow to ebony black

In colonies we fly crossways....!!!

Colours captivated within

Soft petals of myriad open

Blooming smiles in many hued

In search of nectar evermore...

Cascades of tepid air and we fly...

Back to where the history repeats

Sanctuaries of Oyamels

Miles and miles of skies

Free flow and Oh’ so liberating wills!!!

And then we stroke again

Warmth of wild cottons and milkweeds

A lifetime...short and sweet...

We leave our trace to next of keen

And we know they will again fly away

In search of Oyamels....

Orbit of colours splendid...

Butterfly touch to nature vivid

Bohemian soul to sweeten the world a lill more

But with tears in eyes..

We see the fall in sanctuaries...and

We cry within...

At lose of our homes..our hopes...

Plant a Fir, few wild cottons and milkweeds

And help us beatify HIS nature

We just be...

We do not harm you, mankind....!!!

Please make us a safe home..

With our sanctuaries gone

We will also be lost forever...

Do not make us wither...

We covet the nectar of The LORD to rise

Just a beautiful world....

With colors countless to the fore....

Help us sweeten the world for you all ahead...

For a better tomorrow to awake.

PS: a lill about the Monarchs!

Monarchs are the beautiful variety of butterflies mainly famous for its migration from US to Mexico and back. The Sanctuaries of Oyamel trees in Mexico city are famed for its timely visit by these awesome butterflies. End of October, they fly 3100 mils across to five different sanctuaries of Mexico for hibernating. Mid-March they get ready to return to their home to US territory. They are found in California also. There are lots of sites from where detailed can be known about the spectacular butterflies.

“Butterflies are self propelled flowers.”

      Hi Deergha!

      What a lovely poem and lovely butterflies! I have always admired the butterflies, especially the yellow ones with stripes. But didn't know their name and from where originate. You have done full justice to them with your beautiful words and expressive poem.

      Thanks for sharing! Shared on HP!

      Dearest Deb,

      I am very sorry for a much delayed response here. Have been tied up in some issues as you can guess I hope.

      How are you my friend?

      Yes you are absolutely rite about the Monarchs and we should be active enough to preserve their specific needs so that we live long in return by the pollinators really. Your visit and comment is much appreciated like always dear.

      Take care and stay blessed always.

      Many warm hugs your way

      This was a beautiful poem, and I hope the monarch lasts beyond our lifetimes. More of them will fly again, once we eradicate the poisons. Sadly, we are losing more of them in the US AND in Mexico, due to loss of habitat. Please do your best to sign the petitions against Monsanto and Syngenta, who have now combined forces. Without pollinators, we will not be eating, so we'll not survive long as a result.
