“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” — Maya Angelou
Sometimes we chase butterflies,
attracted to the finished bloom of wing,
the sweet flutter of refined beauty,
the canvas completed, the masterpiece;
but there is change and hard work
that must first be protected, a growing
season, from birth to nurture to chrysalis —
all beautiful as part of the consummated
metamorphosis, fully realized maturity
finally able to unfurl and give
back to the world.
