NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 4
“To Breathe Life Into”
After sunrise observance
each of the four moves quietly
in her own direction, mind filled
with thoughts of her daily activities.
Knowing at some moment she will
search out place of quiet,
gather her chosen tools,
breathe in deeply
seeking that stillness
soft flutter of butterfly wings,
moved only by errant wind

Process Notes: The quoted phrase of the title is the original meaning of the word “Create”. The four wings of the butterfly symbolize the four stages of transformation. When we partake in the Creative Process, we are “transformed”, taking on the energy of the Creator, which is always a Spiritual experience and enlightenment. The image is a “happy accident” that occurred when I put one of my pen and ink doodles through the kaleidoscope app.
