Poetry: The Flight of a Butterfly

A free soul…Fluttering whimsically, touching. A butterfly is seen in cultures as a resemblance of a person’s free beautiful soul, whether it be living, dying, or gone from this life perching and watching. Also, they symbolize the rebirth or hope. A free verse poetry and a digital piece to flitter your eyes across.

You can’t contain a butterfly
and expect to keep her
caged in a crystal glass.
You fell for her beauty,
let her wings flutter above the flower tops,
and watch her from afar.
She will come back if you leave a
flower pot upon a window ledge.
