The Butterfly Effect

By Cherie Ward, DC © wardcherie@hotmail.com

 

It’s the metamorphosis

and the transformation,

It’s the journey

and the graduation.

 

It’s the classes of masses

That over thinking surpasses,

It’s ideologies and creativity

That overflows like sweet molasses!

 

It’s the conscious and subconscious

Where meter is introduced in stanzas,

It’s the painting and drawing

Across a bare naked canvas---

 

It’s clay, photography, dramatic arts

And plaster castes,

It’s making love to the mind

and basking in the aftermath.

 

It’s the afterglow of what you know

But more about what you discover,

It is what is unveiled

Once you remove the outer cover.

 

It’s the patchwork quilt

Depicting history, culture and life,

It’s the intricacies of a sculpture

Captured by a carving knife.

 

It is the release of energy,

And the shedding of skin---

It’s not what’s on the outside

But what lies deeply within.

 

It is not doubting yourself, understanding

the Master has balanced the check,

It’s art depicting life

It’s the butterfly effect!
