You are my black butterfly,
While sitting under this tree in the park,
The piercing sun making me wet with inspiration.
I began to write about these feelings      
As I watched a beautiful black shiny butterfly
Sit on my uncovered leg.
It acted as if I were a beautiful rose.
Could it know what my name means ?
It rested as I kept still.
It gently caressed my leg, while
Walking like fingers from my knee to my thigh.
Slowly, I reached out to catch it and it flew away
As I was leaving the park,
I saw that the butterfly began to follow me, Soon
he rested on my shoulder till I reached my destiny.
This black butterfly came back to
Get to know his beautiful rose.

About the author (2005)

The author of this book of poetry is every woman who has survived the hurdles of life without asking God. How high? How high? I have chosen to say, “I am an American woman living in Virginia, but within myself, I find many women and many journeys. So this is not “the end!”

To be continued...

As told in one of the poems she expresses the process of getting it all
down on paper Life has been her teacher           

These Words formulated in my gut as my nerves twisted my intestines into knots of anguish

These words trickled down my face in tears as the drips wet my hand to inspire the will to write it down make it known

These words formed from my a heart and soul dying inside and trying to survive

These words formed and given birth by a God who said now your
suffering is for many and is shared by thousands tell someone tell
