~~~The Flight of the Butterfly~~~

Poetry allows the release of my innermost feelings of love, life & all help make life a success. Painting a picture in your mind with words!

~~~The Flight of the Butterfly~~~

She moves with God’s grace; dancing through the trees in the misty gardens above
She takes flight; moves through the waterfalls with such delight, with the wind beneath her wings as she looks for her one true love

She flows ever so gently through the breeze - Her wings open - then - expand;
As she slowly flies, she notices others are following her in hopes to find the Lamb
Flowing through the skies; we begin the flight of the Butterfly on her journey to find the King
Pretty soon the world shall know what this flight truly means…

She leaves a trail of beauty and peace no matter where she goes
They yearn to capture her beauty inside, trusting to find the Kingdom of love and hope
She dances upon the flowers gently; Fluttering from place to place
She leads them all on her timeless journey embracing them along the way

Freedom calls her name; as she flutters before the throne to bow before the King
I’ve found others who wish to know you and what knowing you truly means
They come before you, kneel before you and bask in the Light of Your Son
They know deep in their hearts that Jesus is the only Begotten Son….

Your treasure waits in heaven if we but follow what the truth is before us
Read your scriptures daily and God will come to you and fill your hearts with love

She leaves behind such beauty, and a little bit of heaven today
She's gone before she ever even appeared; as she happily glides through the skies

The Lord blesses her with such beauty and amazing grace

That was deeply spiritual. Do you imagine butterflies as angels before the throne?

This one is truly majestic.

The butterfly is a beautiful creature to observe.

I wish I could see the things his eyes can view.

Love the picture too.

All of God's creatures are beautiful. The butterfly with all of its colors that flies so freely is especially beautiful. Good job with this poem and meaning.

Butterflies are so fragile and beautiful, the way you wove the flight concerning God is a wonderful testimony of his existence.

I love to see butterflies. This article about the butterfly beautifully flying from one place to another is wonderful.

Have a good weekend, Donna.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on February 21, 2020:

All my four children have chased butterflies. Do not touch unless landed on. Yes for some reasons the butterfly lands on your nose, something about the shine of your eyes.

We live in a Monarch path -- oh the wonder. My son revived a bee from water the other day, of my! What butterfly shall he mend?

Thanks for tying them into God. I reckon God deserves the butterflies He made.

Rosina S Khan on February 21, 2020:
