Painted Butterfly

A lone butterfly
Sharing splashes of color
Against pure, clean white

Our Butterfly is ready to fly, Spread your wings We kiss you goodbye!

Our Butterfly is
Ready to fly, spread your wings
We kiss you goodbye!

Step 3

Place our butterfly where we would like butterfly to be

Step 2

Clean the slate for our butterfly

As our butterfly appeared to be

As our butterfly appeared to be




All joys this earth could bring
The depths of endless sea
Wind in sheltering trees
Could never separate

Thy child from Thy grace
I feel Thy presence
Surrounding me

I am protected
I am loved
Safe, at

Writing a Better Me

Southern Hemisphere Lovin’ Gal
Springtime celebrated every year
This September brought a fresh Summertime Dose
Of turmoil, agony and despair

Not knowing what to do, and where to go
How to get rid of this darkness within
I looked to the sun, and saw brightness and light
I looked within, and felt courage and life

So many words flowing forth from my heart
I started to write, I started to type
And every day ever since
I have written, I have typed

Words arising, healing, flowing
Understanding a little more of my soul within
Therapeuting, growing, empathising
Passionating my way to be a better me –

In the depths of despair I held out my arms
And was gently lifted from the dark well surrounds
To a higher, brighter, sun-drenched place
Of life, and light, and safety
