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,

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
