Chrysalis

CHRYSALIS Sitting in silent reverence I gaze upward towards your galaxy... The endless canopy stretched out Before all eyes... An infinite splendor of Light, energy, portals, stars Mysterious unknown spaces Silent notes fill my soul Playing my heartstrings Reminding me of ancient memories Memories of... Our journey together Inside the chrysalis I embrace you... Growing together Intertwined in color and form and design We breathe as one We expand and sprout into life Preparing to fly Birthing at the same moment I reach my moist orange wing Out into the calling air As my outer shell falls away Your wings move slowly Drying in the breeze Twins we are Twin butterflies embarking on Our journey upward Rising and turning we ride The warm air funnels In joy and delight We laugh in our own language As moondust beckons us further We melt into darkness In an instant light is eclipsed I can only see the glow Of your eyes Color is absent Glow...Glitter...Reflection...Shine Orbs of light and time above us Blue Black transparent silk With a million pinholes of light Shining through A nod to the Creator How grand you are How magnificent Everything as it is... Perfect intention and magnitude With alignment of essence To swim in the stars To dive into the Milky Way To ride a comet until its Last breath of light dies There is no greater gift My heart sings and rejoices For the consciousness of This moment in time Looking down on Mother Earth I see her and I love her I see her Creator hold her gently Glittering webs of tears and light Connect us Galaxy and stars and earth... We pulse together We exhale together We bleed together We are one Susan Lawrence Copyright 2021

So many ways to interpret this one. At first I thought you had a twin! Then I saw it as more profound, all about the universe and the creator. Splendid imagery!
