Evolving

the butterfly jar by lostinthisphotograph 


My wings fly starlight fingerprints
where empty hands pray for wishes.
In a world of fragile glass, I can either break
or grow strength from my weakness.
Time never stops nor do dreams
cocoon in yesterday.

I wanted to tell you how ass-kicking powerful your “Born of Feathers” is! I must leave my comment here, because your Black Ink Howl site won’t let me leave a comment.

I love the strength of spirit that flows in this Susie, certainly a strength born from experience. A beautiful and amazing poem!
Love your ending, Susie!

I wanted to come back by to thank you for your kind words over at my last poem. They are appreciated more than words can say.
