White Butterfly

I debated for a while whether or not I should share this poem. It’s very personal and I feel it comes from a sacred place. I wasn’t sure if it was meant to be shared, or stay close to my heart—free from outside judgement. I even consulted the I Ching, which brought more confusion. I sometimes find that consulting outer wisdom—as enlightening as it can sometimes be—can also bring you further from your own internal knowing. It’s funny, after all this energy I spent debating, I realized I had already published the poem, instead of just creating a draft. So, I guess my subconscious went ahead and sent it out…

White Butterfly

There you are again—
ushering Her spirit,

floating by
to open our hearts

and dissolve
our human
judgements.

We try to contain you with concepts;
reincarnation?
divine messenger?

The truth lies beyond.

Release
and we feel you,

in your simple
expansive
beauty.

For a moment,
at least

dream and dreamer
are one.
