Butterfly dream

"I dreamt, I was a butterfly or was I, a butterfly dreaming . . ." But I was only the cocoon grub, attached to a ceiling, So I hung there thoughts of enrapturing, fascinating, the meaning, But I was still a sordid bug, unloved a heart for stealing, Outside was a Billabong, (Aussie water hole) enchanting was the feeling, I jerked the zip and let me rip, away from the cocoon, delightful slip an swerve, with constant wheeling I had bloody wings an things, entrancing was the moon, Don Johnson 8-july-11 Poet Destroyer ~ A Contest Name any old butterfly poem....

Hey, don, did you know this poem of yours inspired a poetess to do a poem of her own and mention you as the inspiration? I can' t recall who she was right now. Possibly Doris? I see she commented below. Good luck in the contest!

Great one..Enjoy your flight of fantasy into the life of a Butterfly or was it a Lunar Moth..One of your best..Deserves a place in my favorites..Thanks for stopping by and giving a kind review of my work..I don't think that I have the personality of a Aries woman but maybe I do..My husband chose me because he has to be the ruler of everything..Sara
