Joyful Friend

The other day I was photographing my art on the porch when I unexpectedly saw the most beautiful butterfly. It was so lovely watching it dance around the stairs. I couldn’t look away, I didn’t want to miss a thing. When it rested on my long cobalt skirt, my soul filled with joy and pure bliss. The colors were spectacular! I even got a chance to gently pet it’s wings. Since this moment brought a huge smile to my face, I had to capture it with a paint brush and savior it!

Life is all about savoring moments like this. The following day, I saw the same butterfly across the street from my apartment. It was a pleasant surprise to encounter such beauty once more.

Enjoy this little poem that fits perfectly with this painting. ūüôā

A butterfly came into my room

And the drab walls began to bloom

It lent colours on its wings

Even to my most mundane things

I felt rainbows spouting all around

And also heard a strange and faint sound

Was it the whisper of that butterfly

Conveying a message from the yonder sky?

It flew away to become a dot of a bliss

Yet I felt its parting kiss

It has gone but I still hear

Its mysterious song in my ear.
