Butterfly Blooming


The warmth of sunlight

Accented by a cool breeze

Brings forth a rare day in NOLA

On which we neither sweat nor freeze.


And on this fine day,

Despite societal chaos surrounding,

Nature continues her play,

Never minding human corruption abounding.


As a sunbeam is cast,

Amongst the flowers and leaves,

A butterfly sheds its cocoon,

Spreads its wings, gently breathes.


For one moment, just this one,

Corruption squashed by a new life begun.


Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
Big Easy Magazine
