The Maiden Butterfly
The maiden butterfly.
She wanders from flower to flower in all her
brilliant colors. She is a maiden in flight.
She graces us with her beauty. Many photos
have been taken of her. Many books have
been written about her.
For once The maiden butterfly was just a
plain caterpillar who emerged as a beautiful
butterfly. She was a maiden who slept and
when she awoke, she had beautiful, colorful
She then took her first flight and landed on
the tall purple salvia of an old English
garden at an old castle.
Future generations of caterpillars will one
day emerge as beautiful butterflies.
As the maiden butterfly graces us forever in
her subtle way.

The Rainbow In All Her Glory
Upon the many years that have past the rainbow appeared in all its magnificent
The rainbow gave hope for brighter tomorrows.
To help everyone forget all of their sorrows.
She graced us with all her colors and painted a picture in the sky.
The tears from the rain, gave her a reason to appear.
She graces the sky and looks down upon the earth.
The Rainbow in all her glory…
She appeared to Noah in the ark after all of the rain that had fallen.
A hope to all future generations that she would never go away.
To remind us that there is hope for the future generations to come.
She is a symbol, She is a legend in her own right.
And, when we see a rainbow, we must look up at her with respect.
For she will live on for generations to come.
Long after we are gone.
