The Great Carrier of Things

In Christianity, the butterfly is a sign of Resurrection. In Asian culture, the butterfly symbolizes a long life and love. In Native American culture, it is believed the butterfly can bring your wishes to the “great spirit.”

Poem

The flutter of wings,
a soft kiss upon the cheek.
I am the carrier
of
souls
to a new life
so you can live again.
I believe in life
after death.
Come and take me away.
Let me sit on your wings
and fly.

A gentile landing
so sweet. A promise
of love and a long
life.
I am the gentile
spirit.
The great carrier of
secrets.
I believe in
love.
If I whisper my wishes
to you, will you
bring them to the
granter?

Life
Love

    My mind never imagined the butter as powerful but the title of the poem coupled with the words and shape brings that image across. You made a butterfly look formidable.
