beauty, funeral, gothic, grave, heartbroken, introspection, longing,
Between the granite stones
Of the dead
Long ago last breaths do part
Memories seeping in dirt
Black birds and magpies
Lace and knots
Swaying too and fro
On top of the dead
Lover is all but gone
That life flies on
As shadows rest
Upon ones breast
beautiful, best friend, butterfly, death, grief, nature,
As I lie, amongst wildflowers
beneath the butterfly weeds
you pondered through my mind
as you often do, delicately
fragile, essence bursting free
eccentric, dazzling colours
deteriorating, slight physique
weakening petals withered
mournful harps, serenade
sensing your soul has departed
in sorrow, I feel your peace
as I lie, amongst wildflowers
beneath the butterfly weeds
you pondered through my heart
as you often do!

Cats can be loved too
baby, bird, butterfly, cat, death, flying, insect, mother, nature, sad, sorrow,
mournful cries fill the air
mother bird calling for its baby
eaten by the cat
mantis catches butterfly
I am sad: yet, that is
the way of nature
loud feathered thud
- flight into eternity
deceptive glass pane
butterfly, dark, death, gothic,
Blood flows like a river below
Crows feast on dead souls
The moon becomes full
The night becomes a stage
The curtain drops
Capella from the chapel of the stars
Andante so they all die a slow painful death
Inert bodies pile under the stage
I fly away
age, butterfly, death, faith, grandmother,
She lay upon her bed of pain;
the chrysalis grew dull and gray;
the colors which we knew as her
were fading fast, so fast, away;
but, underneath the fragile clay,
we saw new colors burning through
of soul triumphant in its flight
approaching Glory's avenue.
It seemed we heard her spirit groan,
her frail flesh tremble beneath the weight
of wings fast-pulsing with new life
and yearning for the Infinite.
She's free! Her dewy wings soft-dried
by hovering angel's gentle breath
have lifted once, now twice they stir
and find the air: can this be death?

beauty, butterfly, cheer up, children, courage, death of a friend, water,
Waving a white glove
Watching red barge on the River
Easing the Thames
Skipper's dream for ever
As You are up to the top
In Pageant Canaletto scene
Bridging London and Venice
People's Joy and Hope for the future
Ringing the 8 bells on the Belfrey
Announcing worldly water Storms
That will open the doors still ajar
From St.Paul's Cathedral to Big Ben
No mercy nor sympathy for the evil
Greeting the iconic landmarks
From the London-Paris Eye
Like a Mermaid One
among the Trinity Five Hundreds
on behalf of all
Outside the Towers of London
Saluted and respected
Drops of rain to wash some away
Along the banks of our rivers
in steady progress

Children Of The Holocaust
There are butterflies in heaven;
With numbers tattooed on their arm.
Dancing in the gentle breeze;
Free from Hitler’s death farm.
Little Jewish children;
Who knew their lives would end;
Carved butterflies in Auschwitz;
Predicting their spirits would transcend.
What could butterflies have ever done;
To deserve such a cruel fate?
For Nazi soldiers to kill them;
Out of prejudice and hate.
Such suffering for any child;
Oh how my heart cries!
For the smallest victims of holocaust;
And beautiful butterflies.

If its money I got its money ill keep.
If its money I have its money ill weep.
If its love that I give its love ill receive.
For I am but no one who just see's beneath.
Some say your only as strong as you feel, but how could we change..in a place that's so unreal. People are hearing but..not really hearing. Why is the world so blind. I keep on screaming and screaming and screaming for things to be revolutionized. I am just a small song in a world full of cries, laughter, tears and french-fries.

As I rise this day,
thoughts of you go through my mind.
I thank you for another day,
I pray I can do things your way.
The winter is in full bloom Lord,
the chill in the air today is cutting
through the trees,
The branches are crisp and the sky is cloudy,
I pray the day is warmed by your touch,
Lord,I love you so much.
The day is beginning now,
help me to live a life today
that glorifys thy name.

beautiful, bereavement, butterfly,
A kaleidoscope of butterflies
greets my eyes,
on entering this paradise.
Specially built to give joy
to each little girl and boy.
Who never see them now.
As a child I remember well,
there were loads of them
in the glens and dells.
A sure sign of summer.
Along with buzzing bees.
Birds singing in the trees.
Mankind has messed it up.
Their habitat kaput.
With overuse of weedkillers,
and random hedge cutting.
I, for one will be returning
to Butterfly Land this morning.

haiku 9: shootings
the birds were chirping---
butterflies played in the air;
then there was gunfire.
bird, butterfly, death, life, old, symbolism,
Home is where the butterfly goes;
Somewhere no one may ever know.
Home is where the sparrow flies;
A nest in softest shadows hides.
Home is where an old man can die
dream, funeral, insect, joy, leaving, lost love,
Life is like
a twinkling of an eye
Sure is the flight
of a butterfly
With 20 strokes
of its wings
three scores and ten days
only 8 happy moments
its life comes to an end
beautiful, butterfly, death, goodbye, music, sad,
Life - a mere whisper in eternity
Bitter taste tonight of melancholy
Dew on rose petals leaving me thirsty
For nostalgic notes of music folly
And tender dreams under Christmas holly
When feelings run as deep - love does not die
‘Tis no more than a momentary goodbye
As love for you flutters in afterlife
On beautiful wings of a butterfly
In the mystical garden of your life

butterfly, death, loss, september, sister, sunshine,
She is the rustling of the leaves upon the trees
She is the buzzing of the bees
She is the reflection in your tear
She is the whisper of the wind that brushes against your ear
She is a sunflower growing tall from the ground
That is her name upon the grave mound
She is a butterfly, swaying around the flowers
She is the one who brings the April showers
For she is always near, she is what you hear.
My sisters memory is very dear.

sad affections disordered
mourns in the morning
dead butterflies slaughtered by
the blunt blades of butterknives

animal, beauty, butterfly, death, life, nature, spiritual,
A butterfly alights from a dewed rose
As fog begins to lift beyond the trees
What mysteries does this new day propose
Once sun and sky shine lively through the leaves?
An open cottage door within the wood
Sways lightly in the whistling wind at dawn
The house where once a lonely mother stood
Now is home to a doe and her young fawn
The forest is alive with sights and souls
The past and present to this day align
Where weariness of cities takes no tolls
To peacefully repose and then resign
The wilderness is there in every breath
And nature brings its life to even death
Betty Harp Butler
butterfly, death, life,
Like the butterfly emerges
From the dark cocoon to light,
We through Death- the passageway,
Burst forth to another Life.
adventure, age, beach, birth, butterfly, care, celebration, death, death of a friend, devotion, faith,
My battery fully charged
the week is brand new
all the lost loved ones
are telling me thank you
for bringing them to life
in my memory yesterday
now I am ready
to win in any way
and nothing can hold me
back from my dreams
people are staring
in utter disbelief
they think the devil
has contracted my life
little do they know
I took the path to the right
and now I am reaping
the rewards in my struggle
so much so that now
I've reduced my enemies to rubble
and now I am standing
on the power of my own
alive in the jungle of my mind,
my kingdom, I'm home
to see the new dawn
and for all those now gone
I will always remember you
and your spirit will live on.
butterfly, death, feelings, heaven, inspiration, sister, tribute,
Butterfly whispers as the cool rains settles upon me..
There is a serenity within my heart, that speaks of love by a winters fire.
A luminous light will see me through, in all the memories I have of you.
Words of comfort envelope my soul, with a lingering kiss from the heavens aglow.You're the gentle touch who carries my pains, You're my illustrious feelings, my singing in the rains.
And if we should seek in times afar, I know I shall find you among the stars.
For you are the butterfly who whispers my name; who has given my life a beautiful dream..~Copyright 2010~Cyn Sadler
I stood and stared at vivid things
Yellows, white, and neon blues,
From tiny ones, with tiny wings
To graceful giants, in lustrous hues.
There were dandies garbed in polka dots
Others bore alluring eyes,
Some wore shimmering silver spots
As mother nature donned disguise.
Yet for those butterflies I wept,
Their wondrous ruses to no avail,
For in glass cases they are kept,
Collected, killed, and then impaled.

" I dreamt, I was a butterfly, or was I a butterfly dreaming..."
Awed, I reach out to her,
Diamond drops cascade down.
Somehow she cannot see
I lift her chin.
"With such wings, you can fly!"
She wipes her tears.
Downcast wings start to
Enrapturing in her
