Once upon a Winter’s Night When the days were short and the stars were bright A light shone in the heavens above A light that told of a Presence, of a Promise, of a Love This light reached through the darkness to offer sight And what was illuminated there was gentle delight
Out in the night forest and lit from the sky Was a small lone cocoon Opening Transforming into a Butterfly
The journey was tough It was a struggle and it was rough Yet what was born from this journey you could not deny Was beauty and promise in this Butterfly
Love always speaks of promise It always offers hope And in this night, as the butterfly took flight There was new vision and there was new sight
The vision, the Promise Was Love, Hope and Peace And in this transformation the metamorphosis was complete
A new light, a new day, a new presence, a new way Without fear but rather trust The new Butterfly was just Free and soaring, beautiful and strong The beautiful Butterfly sang a new song
Let's take this time of year and the Butterfly's call Let's allow for new vision - Love for us all This is a time to remember Love born so small Was it in a manger A cocoon Is it in the hearts of us all Once upon a Winter's Night When days were short and the stars were bright A light shone in the heavens above A light that told of Presence, of Promise, of Love Receive this message of Peace, Hope and Love Allow for transformation as the Butterfly does ____Teri Kierbel ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Butterfly is the archetype of metamorphosis - the most profound sort of change - and the inescapable symbol of new life. We would do well to understand and emulate.
The Butterfly is a symbol of change, the soul, creativity, freedom, joy and colour. Their power is transformation and soul evolution. Butterflies are messengers that teach us that growth and transformation can be beautiful.
The Butterfly possesses the ability to leave the safety of their cocoon to discover a new world in a new form without fear. They work through many stages to become the beautiful creature they are.
The Butterfly teaches us….
Blessings of Peace this Season of Love! May the Light of Love fill your heart and home. I wish you insight, courage and freedom to soar as the Butterfly.
