"Blooming Butterfly"

I smile when I look at this...thinking...
Surely, this is what a butterfly looks like
when it lies on it's back...right?
With wings open wide to the sky...
...its heart would surely be a fragrant flower...
radiating....
blooming...
and humming
like a honey bee...
or the purr of a kitty.
I realize that I too...am blooming...
awakening...and being refreshened.
I am experiencing a renaissance.
My heart and I are
blooming...
like the butterfly...
and for that, I am deeply grateful.

Cheryl, Looking at your mandalas is a perfect beginning to my morning. You are so in Tune and you remind me to listen more often. (I get caught up in this new life of mine and forget to get quiet).

What you see in this Blooming Butterfly is so wonderful and it is also just beautiful to look at.

I keep running across different writings about awakening and I think of you every time. This is a very special time for you, isn't it? I can feel the buzz.

Hello, I've been enjoying your mandalas along with your commentary. I'd like to feature some of them over at Mandala Madness, if that would be OK with you. I'll link them to your blog and any where else you'd like links to. Let me know! These are wonderful - lively - and interesting!
