Funeral of the last butterfly

I was invited
to the funeral
of the last butterfly
All the birds were there
Insects made a wreath
Queen bee sung a melancholy
Grief too great to bear
Colours already left
Now the last butterfly gone
Everyone felt so lonely
Earthlings were alone
Far away in the sky
a thunder cloud
lightning strike,
a Phoenix flew in
Tears in its eyes,
sprayed on butterfly wings
Butterfly come to life
In all our hearts
Light of her soul
removed despair
Humanity wake up
When would you care
Planet is for all
We have to share
Might won’t work
win if we dare
Extinction of plants
Insects, animals all admire
Greenery in gardens
Fields and shire
Everything could go
If we don’t spare
Consume less,
Don’t scare
Nature, heavens
Water, our own air
Wind may blow
So does rain
Last butterfly
may flutter again
I wish, hope and pray

  2. Lovely and sad. They are fewer every year, even though we plant for them, use no pesticides and even make sure the water dishes are the right shape for them, I see bees drinking from them but very few butterflies these days.

    1. Thanks a lot Jane for sharing that. Yes such beautiful creatures, soul of nature, we keep putting them in jars and for our own amusement.

  3. Sad, lonely but lovely poem. Epic in scope and nature – fittingly true – a wake-up call that not enough realize and are willing to act upon in a healing, positive way.

    1. Dear Maryrose,
      I am so grateful for your wonderful thoughts, indeed I hope, wish and pray that the world never see that day ever. This is just a simple humble reminder that it could happen if we continue to be reckless with our planet.

    1. Many thanks Sam, glad you liked it amazing scientist, I wish you and your fellow scientists all the luck in finding cures, I was recently reading about cancer, gene therapy and stem cell research and it is literally heart breaking to read about 30 to 40 thousand mutations of each type of cancer and near impossibility of creating a magic bullet even in the next few decades…

      1. Thank you for the wishes. It is true. There probably will not be a ‘magic bullet’. The search for one has led millions of scientists down blind alleys. The more we look, the closer we look, the more we find and the less we know. But incredible things are happening all the time. There has never been a greater effort than now and it will only get bigger and better. So, I am positive. Anything else I would not want to do this anymore!

  5. This is very informative. We all know that one day everything will be extinct. But we are bringing that disaster closer by not caring about our nature. Just wish that the last butterfly day never comes. 😉
