Butterfly

"But if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives to all generously and  ungrudgingly, and He will be given it." James 1:5

Father,

The soul

Is Your butterfly, yes,

Through water and the Spirit,

The soul breaks free

From Adam's cocoon; and

With Jesus-Hued wings,

Flies to You.

As a Monarch butterfly,

The soul lifts up to You and

Wings pass all the eye-spearing owls as

They perch on the limbs of the worldly.

They screech through the night --

Faith is the lore of the lonely,

The wisdom of the weak.

Clearly, Father, yes,very clear,

The have not flown with Jesus-Wings. No,

Faith

Is wisdom's beam,

It light truth's path. and

Dims only when trust mists. For,

Faith

Is for those with heart,

Who fear not risk, but

Have the mettle

To leave their will

For a life trusting Your Will.

This is wisdom.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
