The Lovers & The Butterfly

a new poem
by Ben Sheppard - 20 August 2011
somewhere,
another time,
another dimension,
here,

two friends stand alone together walking through the world,
their love is childlike, innocent, hidden, protected,
inspirational beacons... throughout the ages,
committed... supporting... creative independence,
both freely choose to explore each others mystical pool.

diving into each other...
they come to a place where they find others,
others who dove into other mystical pools,
here they all stand...
in a circle around a deep mystical pool of iridescence,

drunk with love...
everyone dives in fearlessly...
courageously...
intimately,

within the iridescence...

a great transformation...
metamorphosis...
multidimensional interlinking...
a deep timeless quiet...  

a darkness..............................................................

an emergence...

a cobalt blue toric mist spins into existence
the most beautiful wings of all stories ever told unfold and take shape,
a brand new beautiful creature slowly stumbles into multidimensional self awareness,
the beautiful creature is pregnant,
she gives birth to a new universe,
where two friends meet...

somewhere,
another time,
another dimension,
here.
