This is the revised first poem I used to sign guestbooks as Papillon Poetess for Guestbook Butterflies.

Butterfly Minds

To sing one need not have a voice-
for even the breeze, river, and spirit sings.
So in order for us to take flight-
we need not have a pair of wings.

All we must do is imagine-
with open hearts and minds, and closed eyes-
then we will see ourselves flying-
soaring and floating through the skies.

We are all beautiful butterflies-
graceful, powerful, colorful, and bright.
With open hearts and open minds-
itís possible for us all to take flight!
