I love to watch the butterflies that flutter by -
They remind me of new life
Alluring heliotrope and amber wings that signify
Metamorphosis from the strife.
I love to watch the children grow -
Like butterflies, they change throughout the seasons
From gangling teens to full grown adults
Who act like human beings.
I love to observe butterflies emerging from cocoons,
Beautiful in their transformation,
Just as children who open their hearts to God
Become responsible and caring generations.
I love to see butterflies pollinate the flowers
After the marvel of transfiguration occurs,
A symbol of God's people lauding His powers
And continually spreading His word.
