Life of Butterflies
On Two by Maria Beck
“Power to Love”
A sleeping Beauty
Waits another century
Her hair grows and the birds comb and wash it
Her fingernails grow and the butterfliers snip and polish them
They too are waiting for Prince Charming.
“Age of Innocence”
A new age – trapped in a glass globe
To keep her innocent
Flowy, white wisps have kept her dancing,
Like lights of fireflies its held by butterflies
And a few have made their way inside
To help her forget and forget again her own imprisonment.
