Cocooning the Butterfly ~ Poem
No love is truth lest truth be unconditional and spoken
I was once a lost and dying Caterpillar
Alone and afraid I approached from the desert
You found me shivering in fear, thirsting and weak
Soft-spoken words emit with genteel kindness
Your love cocooned me in warm solace
Sheltered in your shroud of safety, I was held
Cradled in protection, nurtured in the darkness
Basking in the delight of your sunny gaze, I emerge
Renewed in rebirth and joyously weeping, I spread my wings
Your gentle kiss in life’s first embrace and I soar
A Butterfly’s whisper echoes free through love’s sanctuary
Embodied in the serenity and fulfillment of your pleasure
We share one living soul, one passion, one truth, one flight
My Cocoon, you are my very best Part
For without your love to cocoon me as a Caterpillar
I could not live this life as your Butterfly
Our love is truth, because our truth is unconditional
And spoken, when we say . . . I love you.

Quote from “Cocooning The Butterfly”
“When men made promises that were kept and women worked alongside their men to create a life of stability, strength, honor and unconditional love, there was honesty, fairness, and truth; a love known only of a Butterfly and her Cocoon. … It is the truth and only the truth that will set you free; free as a Monarch Butterfly in spring. … Promises must be kept, and sometimes those promises must be delivered to lay past souls to rest. … God does work in mysterious ways when something requires learning. … Seek and ye shall find. … Keep watch, for God does not always show His blessings and gifts in an obvious manner. … Inheritance is meant for the true heir, and a blessing is meant to give cause to the chosen for their calling, but a gift is given as a reward for one’s actions. … To love unconditionally is to live as free as the Monarch’s Butterfly in spring; follow in the footsteps of the Keeper of the Promise, and you will uncover the truth. …. Find the man who is worthy of your Butterfly Bed, Sweetheart, for he is the Keeper of the Monarch.”
“Thank you, Father, for all of your blessings.” Halya had solved the puzzle.
Quote from “Cocooning The Butterfly”
“Your fathers were of Noblemen, Artisans, Sheppard, and Sword. They did love in great bounty, in honor, in justice, in truth and in pride. The promise of the old men of long ago was to each other, to share this land as one family. I am the blessing and the promise, to honor thy fathers before thee, that their heirs be prosperous in the union of the bloodlines; this promise I grant unto these children, that they shall multiply in love and in family abundant. The vision which your eyes do see upon my sanctuary; this family is the treasure of the blessing that I have given freely. For in her heart, the purest born, is where I do abide, and in your heart, one as steadfast as the bison in the fields, is the living spirit of this land; a land of plenty and a land which will remain fruitful for centuries to come. This blessing I grant in favor of your union, as one heart and one living soul, for I shiver only in the truth of unconditional love; a truth, known only to a Butterfly and her Cocoon.”
