❦ Chrysalis ❦

An inevitable
Springs forth
As seasons change.

Hardened walls
re shattered,
Shaped and surrendered
Into nature’s perfect design.

Timing is critical, of course ~
But all changes occur
Exactly when they are supposed to.
Can you feel it?

Another new butterfly
Soon takes flight
And a tiny ripple
Occurs somewhere ~

Setting off a tsunami
Inside your heart.
Hope springs, ever eternal
And it turns out…

That those days
In between those seasons
Didn’t really matter
After all.

    These lines are so beautiful and so deep….an entire life story is contained in them. You are very much one of those, that you dedicate this to.

      1. Lol, lmao put the jelly away, this is the worst phone in existence, slow as hell, charging etc, I hate it, and my other phone died and took most of my poetry with it, too the grave😂😂😂😂😘 huge HUGS!😆😋💗

  3. Psst. You rang? I heard you have a message for me? I like this poem, K. Glad you are back. Stay awhile this time. I missed – you. ❤︎❤︎❤︎

    1. One of my favorite Poets! :o)

      You definitely inspire, lady, always, always. I wanna hear about your trip! So fun. I was gone, buried in work, looks like around the same time you were traveling. But you were missed fo sho! xoxo

  4. Haha! Ah, you tickle my soul. The trip to CT was fun! FlyTrapMan and I met up and worked on a project. Check it out on SlasherMonster.com. You could win an Amazon gift card!

    Thanks for always making me feel so welcomed every time I visit. You’re a darling, JM! xoxo

    1. Don’t be offering me Amazon, girl. Sheesh, I know you trying to capture me and put me in a cage in your basement. You and Fly prolly got a plan to feed me poetry and let me potty in a bucket or something.

      Yah, I’s heard ’bout dis. You give me the amazon card and then you find me…next thing I know, you at mah door with a VAN and a handkerchief filled with stuffs and such as!

  6. I think of you as a butterfly….metamorphosis and all. I finished the transcript tonight. Call me in the a.m. We have a very long discussion ahead. 😉

      1. Thanks. It’s nice to see you too. It’s been rough. I’m actually looking for a part-time job so I can make some extra money. How are things with you?

      2. Things are fair to midland. Buried in work. Not a lot of time to blog this summer. My first quarter every year is rough. My second quarter is a nightmare. Third is more relaxed and fourth quarter is a cake walk. Haha, so I guess I’m in the full on shit storm right now with work. Other than that, life is good. I had to rehome my dog, Charlie. He was quite a bit more aggressive than we can manage around here. My girls are calm, peaceful, docile darlings for the most part and he kept them completely stressed for the 6 months we had him. But, he is with a friend who breeds Cairn Terriers and sells them. They are looking into getting him AKC registered, so he will have a lot of good perks, especially if he sires. He’s a wonderful dog and I still get to see him sometimes, but it’s been a little sad around the house. Not as lively as it was. I just don’t have the time it takes to properly train him and he needs a lot of space. He grew to a whopping 18 lbs. in just 6 months!! Stocky, robust little fella. Alas, he is in better hands now. 🙂 I wish you well on your job hunt! Extra money is good. What do you want to do careerwise? Have you gone to school yet?

      3. I’m glad to hear that the third and fourth quarters will be better for you. What do you do for a living? I’m sorry that you are in the shit storm right now. I hope it will get better for you. I’m sorry to hear about Charlie. Wow he’s big, but I am glad that he’s in better hands. I’m sorry you weren’t able to keep them though. He sounds like a wonderful dog. Thank you. Actually I had some luck with that. I talked with my old boss from my job at Tanglewood and it’s possible I could be working there part-time again. I would love it. I loved my job at Tanglewood for the most. The thing I loved most about it was Robin who’s my boss and she’s really great to get along with. So hopefully it will all work out. I’m still deciding on school. I haven’t decided a major. I want to do either Herbal-ism or Teacher Assistant. I am still planning to pursue my Massage Therapist license I’ve just had a lot of going on with moving to an apartment and after only living here a month I decided I can’t stay here and I’m trying to move because I can’t afford to stay here. It’s a big shit load of mess. Work has been crazy too, but it could be worse and I’m grateful that it’s not worse than it is.

      4. Ahh, well, I hope you get to be back with Robin. It’s better to be where we are happy. Can you go back with the fellas, as well? I really hope everything works out for you. 💙

      5. Thank you I hope it will work out too. I couldn’t believe that she emailed back that quick. I was very surprised. It was a nice surprise though. Well actually I’m going to talk to Tyler and see if I could. I wouldn’t be able to live in the house because all the bedrooms are occupied at the moment, but I could make other arrangements if I wanted to live there again. I’m sure we could work something out. Tyler is currently out of town with his fiance for his birthday so I’ll talk to him when he gets back. I’m also seeing if anyone has a room for rent. I’m going to put out feelers and see. I just know that I have to get out of here. Thank you I hope so too. I’ll keep you posted and let you know.

    1. Hello, lovely. Butterflies are one of the most amazing things in nature, I think. :o) How’s you? Wishing you a wonderful weekend. 💖😂😇😘💖

    1. J’ai erré depuis longtemps … souhaitant, espérant, vouloir … en vain. Vous êtes l’interdit. Faisons les règles et les divisons d’une manière que nous pouvons vivre. Je ne veux jamais blesser personne et je me trouve en proie à la culpabilité de vouloir … ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

      1. My love,

        Permettez-moi d’embrasser les larmes de culpabilité avec un million de bisous. Voissons la nuit. Je ne peux plus attendre. Ils ne seront jamais plus sages … 💙💖

  7. It is interesting how change is inevitable because it is but at the same time you incorporated it that it is also futile. I loved how you took the reader through the change of the butterfly and stressed that the timing was crucial, everything needed to happen at a certain time, it needed it’s moment and it needed to be right but at the end of the day, the change was bound to happen anyway and the butterfly was going to emerge anyway because it was supposed to. Hope floats…..it’s like I said, when dreams and reality collide, magic happens. ;o) Magic is you writing.
