MONARCH WINGS

Waxy colors rained down

Turning bright colors

Of greens, reds, and blues

Into those of muddy brown.

 

And in war and strife, I drop anchor here

In this sea so soft with murk,

Thinking of how much better it is to let the children

See this world than the one that lies beyond.

 

There’s shelter, though, in my arms,

For they have already weathered far more.

Healing comes in all forms here

And my forgiveness covers every hurt.

 

We will start over; we will persist

Where the sun is merely a lantern in the sky

By weaving the ground into baskets

And singing tapestries into butterflies.

 

Now there’s beauty in the eyes of dragons

For they know not how to extinguish

That which makes them monstrous.

So, the only difference between us is how we use our fire.

 

I provide solace here as we float together yet

Tethered to the silty floor of a world burst

Into glory in skies painted

With monarch wings in golden disguise.
