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.
