By J Ann Crowder

Hope is a design of expanding, utopian branches bound to my heart
 
Hope is a genteel medicine of fairy fay butterfly wings—a divine surrender
 
’Tis magick
 
An emblem of authentic truth in which my soul longingly whispers
 
By and by, vibrantly cherished joys retreat to my inner core, like turning petals of fibonacci
 
Within my silently centered being, I create with a lightness of quiet grace
 
A transfiguration ensues, like arrays of polished rainbows dancing a quixotic tune
 
Inside my eluding tower an awaited, ghostly phantom appears—a sacred rebirth
 
Upon a germinating zeal of empyreal growth, I ever keep
 
A goddess is unfurled—my soul no longer a stranger
 
She is a luminous, runic of perfection
 
’Tis an ell of starry wings ready to touch a fresh, teal sky’s brilliance

Written January 11th, 2017. Life is like the transfiguration of the butterfly. Hope is the wings of the butterfly on our heart.

Hope, inherently with us since we were conceived, beautifully expressed by nature via the gossamer wings of the butterflies.
So fragile and light yet we cling to it preciously held close to our hearts - for happiness, for love, for life. Your poem reminds me of my Cicadas poem - a transfiguration from the dark depths of earth to a deafening cries for life during their brief encounter with the glorious nature above earth. Love. Thanks so much Jenifer.

"petals of Fibonacci" - I haven't heard of that mathematical series in a very long time, but it sure describes a divergent spiral that gets larger and larger. I love the image created.

Beautiful poem... BTW how can I polish my rainbow?

LOL! That's a good question? I'll save it for another poem. I think the storm is what polishes the rainbow though?
