How I wish I were a Butterfly


With brightly pigmented wings
Patterns of polka and rings
Delicate and alluring
From bloom to bloom ambling

Soaring high and low
To the gardens I bow
Resting on flowers
Imbued with the heavenly showers

Feeding on nectar
The only way to nurture
Discernible, fluttering flight
Not in dark, but daylight

Acquainted with every blossom
Beauty and pleasure for many some
Yesterday a caterpillar, today a butterfly
Weather and resentment to defy

Subject of literary art
Brooch and jewel to look smart
In freedom and delight I would live
Short, but as beautiful, if I may strive

  1. Amazing!!!! i thnk all gr8 poets r inspired by nature...
    Reminds me of a poem by one of my fav poets

    I've watched you now a full half-hour;
    Self-poised upon that yellow flower
    And, little Butterfly! Indeed
    I know not if you sleep or feed.
    How motionless! - not frozen seas
    More motionless! and then
    What joy awaits you, when the breeze
    Hath found you out among the trees,
    And calls you forth again!

    gr8 work Amna...ll be waitin for ur next masterpiece...

    Wow! Beautiful..thanks a lot for sharing it here. This shows you have a great taste for poetry. I am impressed by the way you quoted such a similar poem of your favorite poet in response to mine.

    And I am particularly honored for being compared with Wordsworth :)...thanks for calling me great. That would do a great thing to my confidence now and in future.

    You wouldn't have to wait longer for my next one...nowadays, my creative juices are flowing the right way ~ lucky days for me ~ !

Everyone needs a place in their life where they can go to escape the demands of family and work, enjoy some adult time and be free from the daily grind. Psychologists call it ‘the third space’ because most people spend the majority of their lives in two places – home and work. A third space provides a haven from these places of responsibility, where we can chill out and indulge our leisure interests. For me, my third space is my blog. It is without doubt the most important part of my world.

Somewhere faraway; As I sit to feel the silence, My thoughts are carried away by THE WHISPERS OF MY HEART!!
