Butterflies are Higher – by mare

[a spirituality listserv that I’m on had a series of poems and entries about butterflies this morning and this inspired this — all while the snow still comes down! what a blizzard…!]

Butterflies are Higher

butterflies are higher
when things are dire.
they seem to know
before the wind does blow.

the caterpillar is low
a life of munch and crawl
with nary a brawl.

it’s the chrysalis I wonder
it’s no mistaken blunder
for nature’s way
and butterfly’s day.

as for humans and flight
and transformation to light
we’re still so stuck
on the great wonderful buck ($1)

we’ve yet to learn
caterpillar’s true yearn
to go inward and grow
create that spiritual glow

and find the wings of bliss divine
to truly drink the sacred wine.
