Paula Light says, “Welcome to Thursday Inspiration! This is my weekly prompt and hopefully it will inspire you to write something creative, perhaps a poem or a piece of flash fiction.” The theme is butterfly.
As I cleaned out your house I did my best to do all that you asked.
I must admit I was surprised at all the butterfly decorations I found.
I never knew you were such a fan.
I knew of most of your “collections.”
These graceful creatures surprised me and made me smile.
Always trying to let the world think you were such a tough cookie.
I knew better.
I knew your heart better than most.
The butterflies were symbolic for me.
I needed to accept your transitioning from this world.
I welcome the fact that now when I see butterflies they give me spiritual strength.
I think of you and how I must continue my own transformation.
Thank you for the many butterfly reminders.
I know you are still looking over me.
