The World Is A Butterfly's Wing

The World Is A Butterfly's Wing
by Allen Cohen

An awareness arises
from within the mind
where God hides
waiting to be called,
whispering hauntingly
" Come deeper, find me!
The world is a butterfly's wing.
Be gentle and come deeper."

Decoding Spring

There is an intelligence
that impels flowers to bud
encoded in every cell of the tree.

The code says, "I will flower-
I will leaf. I will fruit. I will seed
and I will create more of me.

I will breathe C02.
I will use the light and heat of the sun
and I will be.

I will provide
the nectar of the flower,
the sweet fruit and the shade of my leaves.

I will breathe out Oxygen
and countless beings will be created and flourish
and they will be healed and nourished by me.

They will help spread
my essence and preserve me -
my plan is perfect.

Through this giving
with this constant beauty
through these endless creations

in the hidden world of my seed
nesting in the dark passivity of the earth
there will be a paradise."

An awareness arises
from within the mind
where God hides
waiting to be called,
whispering hauntingly
" Come deeper, find me!
The world is a butterfly's wing.
Be gentle and come deeper."
