Butterfly Souls ~ sonnet

Postby Stella » Thu Mar 09, 2017 9:35 am

I hope my soul will be a butterfly
as all the ancient legends seem to say,
it would be wonderful if when I die
in God’s great tranquil garden I could stay.

For some say butterflies are souls re-born
and I would like to think that thought is true,
we leave this life to find a higher dawn
and rise to greater things in pastures new.

Maybe our souls wander through history,
go back and see ourselves in times long gone
when other futures we could not fore-see
we did not know our essence could live on.

My soul would love to be a butterfly
and flutter close whenever you’re nearby.

A fascinating sonnet with lots of interesting butterflies in the beautiful video you have provided. I believe butterflies are spiritual and I hope my soul will be a butterfly too. I very much enjoyed the philosophy you have crafted in this English Sonnet thank you Stella, and my favourite line is 'maybe our souls wander through history'.
