Fly away


oh butterflies
of belize
how your wings
beat for escape
from the cage
of your 
destiny

i stand with you
weary and tired
in the struggle
of flight

for
something
better

different

new
 
crashing against
the morning dew
each day

seeking light
beyond reach

our time is filled
with empty space

waiting
waiting
waiting
 
locked in our prison
of unrest

abandoned
forgotten
tattered and torn

we seek freedom
like the
air

the butterflies
of belize
 
and

me

The Lodge of Chaa Creek near San Ignacio, Belize, several years ago.)
