Poem 189:

a Lantern in the Night


A lantern in the night
lies within, waiting to bring forth life,
to paint the field with flowers,
and butterflies ever so bright

to chart a nighttime sky
and await the rise of day
to navigate the sea of clouds
and find the flower within

for inside the soul
a lantern burns deeply
seeking to find the butterfly
waiting to take flight.
