Don’t tell me not to love

The butterfly above

My butt,


May know

The pain of a

Tattoo, but do you

Know the flames which

Forged this caterpillar

In its chrysalis into

A dragon patterned

Flutterby, a


Symbol of change

Both in heart and

Mind—complete! And

Free in its life cycle

However long or short

It’s memory,  this fine,

Graceful creature

Knows only
