Between my shadow and my soul

Wandering hearts within butterfly nets

Source of pic

The soft, beat, beat, beating
Of butterfly wings against a net
Is the symbol of Life
As long as we beat, we breathe
When this ceases, our wings lose
Their need to live, and our hearts
Forget their need to beat

I like the metaphor, reminds me of societal interconnectedness .. we all live, we all die .. Mutually Assured Destruction, that now fossilized terminology from the 80's .. was really about reminding us of the need for colllaboration. Your success is my success .. OmG .. it sounds like a TJ lecture after Namaaz .. shock horror!

nice metaphor of life, there are days when i feel we are all trapped in that glass case...searching for meaning, something bigger, greater than us
