Inspiration: Butterfly Magic

on July 11, 2012

the mystical, magical butterfly

holder of dreams, keeper of secrets

lives each day for the moments

leaving simply no time for regrets

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. ~Rabindranath Tagore

Morpho Butterfly: Mexico, South America and Central America

the Morpho Butterfly

a brilliant sight unforeseen

shimmers in day’s light

metallic shades of blue and green

The Owl Butterfly: Rainforest of Central and South America

the Owl Butterfly

donning eyespots big and bold

thrives in the rainforest

ne’er fearing Winter’s cold


Monarch Butterfly: State insect of Alabama

the Monarch Butterfly

well known to mankind

Alabama’s state beauty

not at all a rare find

Kamehameha Butterfly: State insect of Hawaii

Kamehameha Butterfly: State insect of Hawaii

the Kamehameha Butterfly

with its rare richness of red

floats gracefully in the air

resting in a tropical bed

Walk in the meadow, kneel down in quiet repose; let the daisies hug your knees and the butterfly kiss your hand. ~catnipoflife

    Such exquiste beauty, Btw, that was the only three poeple I know in Alabama that talked to you at the dentist–one in a million chances of that!! My friend was amazed as well. We all need help–none of us know how to answer the tags??? But we all want to do it.

      Micki, are you saying you know the people I met at the dentist? If so, WOW! What a small world. Here is how the tagging works. Begin a new post with a thank you for receiving the tag from catnip. Then, follow in the same post with the rules, your responses to the questions, your new set of questions and links to the blogs you want to tag. You are welcome to use my posting as a guideline. Including pictures is purely optional. Let me know if you have any other questions. Looking forward to your posting.

  5. Hi Sharla,
    This was so relaxing. Thank you. Today has been stressful from over 3,000 e-mails this weekend and nowhere near answering them. So in frustration, I decided to do something else-then came this wonderful video and You. I sat back and in sheer delight released tears of joy for all my blessings and let go of the things I can not do.
    Thank you.

      WOW! And to think it was quite by accident I found the link which had been lying dormant for probably months. It was just meant to be reclaimed today:>) I have become very frustrated with the email situation. Today, like you, I just let it go. This is the first time I have opened it and will leave it again in about 30 minutes. Just not going to worry about it any more!
