Why did the turtle cross the road?
Why can’t the turtle jump like a toad?
Why can’t a toad swim anymore
with the tail of a fish as it did before?
Why does the bee cling to the bloom?
Why does the flower fear not doom?
No need to sting the bloom, you see;
for it does not threaten the lowly bee.
Why does the dragonfly breathe no fire?
Why is fire the heart of desire?
Why should desire consume the soul
and rend apart what once was whole?
Where does the butterfly sleep at night
when its heartbeat slows and ends its flight?
Must butterflies have to earn their wings
and discourse with angels, do they softly sing?
We must protect the ones that fly…
and swim and crawl and wonder why
the humans still refuse to learn
as they strip, deplete, poison and burn.
This gift of existence, rare and sweet
is in perfect balance with one heartbeat.
Nothing is real..
Save the constant, sweet
Seize the day!!
