Tha frozen flowers are being painted 
by an unknown painter.
The butterflies are looking for gunpowder
in the winter
to burn themselves,
to burn these beautiful frozen flowers.

A Chaotic Circle with the power,
with the guns and gunpowder;
It confines everything except stars.
I want to brake these bars!

Without love our only chance is a miracle.
Can we save the butterflies
from this vicious circle?
Can we change the smell of gunpowder?
Can we change the world?

    I wish i could change the world... but cannot... but i keep on trying.. Maybe if everybody gave that bit of energy.. maybe then we could make those bits a whole..Great wise message.

    Z.S., i like.the image you have here... frozen flower...let's save the butterflies.. paint pictures without that smell... but, no the more we try to change the more we pull away from that miracle, and fall into that vicious circle call.. survival of the fittest..great poem..pd

    That appears to be a question without an answer. I have written lots of poetry taken from the Balkan situation, it seems the world cares not one tad more than it cares for East Central Africa. We must work harder.
