Butterfly

                    Butterfly…

I was in a cocoon dark and cold
          Hallow from within silvery gold
Closed and tight trapped my soul
          Wishing and hoping to find a hole
I got the courage to break my mold 
          When you take chances secrets unfold.
I broke the darkness, into the light;
          Sweet illusions of life delight.
I drank the nectar and flaming dew
          Happy and drunken, life renew
I kissed the lips of a golden bud
          Meaning of love flooded my blood
I flapped my wings that were purple and blue
          Danced with wind in a garden I knew
Flying and loving in a garden of joy
          Doing the things that I always enjoy
I heard a sound from a nearby room
          Shouting at me you can only assume
Wake up and get up, morning has passed
          Dreaming of butterflies not going to last…

What a wonderful poem... Now I understand why a butterfly features in your pictures Pashang - we have both emerged to fly high, you as a butterfly and me as a dragonfly:-) hugs Jan xx

Indeed... sometimes there is a dream within a dream, a man dreaming a butterfly and he dreams of a man. Sometimes I'm confused, am I a man or a butterfly... thanks for reading my work...

A poet is a writer but a writer is not necessarily a poet. A verse is a grouping of words although technically it was once a single metrical line in a poem. Some may refer to a verse as a stanza. I hope this helps somewhat. Also I think poets have very interesting ways of viewing what may seem to others as quite ordinary. The gift of seeing what for some is unseeable and then somehow helping them see it, is the gift of poetry.

I agree with your first and your last statements. Poet paints the words and a writer, write the words. When I am reading some of these poems willfully they write it not to make any sense; bunch of words with ludicrous puzzles that got in a way of true understanding as well as true feeling. I understand ambiguity, but non sense, I do not.

Thank you Richard. I read yours and every contest winner, winning piece as well; I am puzzled about the difference between a writer and a poet and a verse and poetry. Until then thank you very much for reading my PIECE! Cheers
