Butterfly 🦋

I wish I was a butterfly

Butterfly 🦋

I wish I were a butterfly
Silently carrying beautiful
Paintings by Miró on my wings
To your garden

I would flutter before you
And light upon your finger
So you can hold me up
To admire my colors

I would have no fear
That you would harm me
Why would you harm something
That only seeks to bring you joy?

Alas, I am no butterfly
But only a caterpillar
That can aspire no higher than Pupa
And has to abandon all dreams
To return to the cocoon
