Incubating, there within a chrysalis
a butterfly will dream
of floating on warm streams of wind
knowing their beginning
but never of an end

for life goes on
and nothing can impede
the speed of wings
on winds that sing

A flutter and a flash
a sputter and a splash
and dolphins ring around
the stranger found

in waters ever deep
to uplift and to keep
a soul afloat
in days that dote

on chemistry instead of mystery
yet a new day always dawns within the sea
cacooned in darkness
waiting, dreaming
for the dream of life
to come alive again
