Butterflies in the Woods

Painting and Poem by Dr Abe V Rotor
For Candido and Socorro Raquepo on their 
50th Wedding Anniversary, Nov 30, 2017

They come fluttering in a swarm in Spring,
In the magic of metamorphosis;
They come in Autumn when trees are bare,
In the mystery of symbiosis. 

The blue sky and brown earth are but one,
The woods in harmonious unity; 
Creatures all, big and small, to freedom,
Where peace reigns in diversity.

Where does man come in, what’s his part? 
In a thousand ways we can only guess;
Would Nature be better with his genius? 
Or simply his awe and reverence. ~
