Gods Nectar

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the master calls a butterfly.

Metamorphosis has always been the greatest symbol of change for poets and artists. Imagine that you could be a caterpillar one moment and a butterfly the next.

Wrapped in tranquility within this sacred cocoon

Do not touch this silk I am hiding in, or I may perish

Transforming through the manifestation of grace

Leaving behind all unwelcome aversions

Watch as I slowly weave a tapestry

Each thread bestowed with acknowledged endeavor

Life's lessons transporting me through any fear

Secured by the love and benevolence given to me undeserved

Watch as I transmute in essence

Giving birth to life's purest gift

Carrying this love forward to no longer struggle

Holding only what blesses us both

A journey which pollinates us with

The sweetest nectar from above....

Glad you have returned, like a butterfly from its cocoon, transformed!

Thanks Shane, I see not much has changed as far as the floggers, but what will be will be. I did fly away for a while, but somehow fluttered back here. :D

...and we benefit again from your insights into what's important in life. Perspective from the heart. For isn't the heart the conduit to anything meaningful or worthwhile to promote the full meaning of our tenuous existence?

Thank you Riginal, I do tend to see the world through my heart. It can be good, but it also can break my own heart at times. I am an empath, not doubt about that. If someone else is hurting, I will often feel their pain too. You are so kind my friend...thank you.
