The Beautiful Butterfly

PC: From Internet

The butterflies fluttering their wings,  

as if someone has splashed the colors,

they fly from one flower to the other,

collecting the tiny drops of nectar,

symbolizing beauty and symbolizing positivity,

with unique patterns, we witness nature’s creativity,

But  did they always looked so beautiful,

arising questions in our hearts plentiful,

the process was never painless,

any metamorphosis is never effortless,

caterpillars look ugly and get a lot of hate,

their very existence is a topic for debate,

But it’s the self-belief with which the transition 

takes place consistently  in a cocoon 

Nature has a unique way of teaching lessons,

even though a tiny winged being flying on the horizon!!

Note: My Poem is a submission for the Poetry Marathon -2020 on Pratilipi and all my poems will be dedicated to Nature.
