Why Wouldn’t You!

you who threw the stone

into the stream

or walked pass

a simple caterpillar

without a glance


a second thought

but if you had taken

the time

perhaps had waited

to hear the break of water

that hollow sound


the metamorphosis of


stroll across the pavement

with its folding furry back

you would be amazed!

and why wouldn’t you!

the symbolic nuance of

ever decreasing circles of

ripples and years


the life of a butterfly!

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
