Butterflies and Spacemen

This is my (late) offering for the Sunday Muse, which I often attempt to write for but which I’ve only posted for once or twice. This week’s image is below:

Monarch butterflies symbolize rebirth:
Kings seeking asylum from
The insanity of Earth,
Refugees to the Moon.

I pray, and kneel, arms
Strong in God’s holy refuge:
Maybe Luna can welcome me too,
I’d be the butterflies’ subject.

  1. “Maybe Luna can welcome me too,
    I’d be the butterflies’ subject.” – Nice way to bring in both the moon and the moth, and how we’d be subjects of the “monarch”!

  2. Reminds me of an oldie CW song, “Thank God and Greyhound she’s gone.” (A small lesson if you’re not old like me and don’t know Greyhound, they are a fleet of cross country busses. And also give city tours.)
