Dragon Butterfly Kisses

The end would capture all the moments of his life
working backwards to the beginning of today
unblinking gnarly rapid decisions
dreams to roost on the hen house with cheerful cluck
praying for prosperous eggs

He was old
An owl hoot away from the end
packaged without regret in the reception of wise skin
Instructing youth to be careful and carefree

Time traveling back to replace not the short order
Butterflies may become dragons
Dragons never to be flying
A demon uprising from under the bed
Dogs may never have a morning less a day
Thoughts lost amongst what if and maybe’s

Not listening to unrequited impetuous calls
passion silkscreen still beautiful on old tapestry
Finished good at the beginning of a new knowing
Finished tall in short regret

Fine tuning the time to the last hold of light
The sun is not waiting for you to run away
The moon is not shining for you forget
Be a dragon with butterfly kisses

Artist's Description

Regrets get the better of us sometimes …
Bitter and old seems not the place to go.

I have worked in various settings with elderly people and have met some wonderful beacons of wisdom.
Our new techno whizz kids can learn so much from the old owls me thinks.
