73 (who?)
Emotions Flowed Like A Raging Fire
As I watched The Birth Of Dawn
Softness And Beauty Of Stars Had Past
My Heart Still Heavy And Forlorn
My Spirit Was Ebbing I was About To Go
When Something Caught My Eye
A Solitary Cloud So Pure And White
Appeared From Way Up High

My Eyes Now Ember With Rising Sun
Saw An Amazing Sight
Within Its Fleece A Golden Glow
And A Butterfly Took Flight
Such Beauty I Had Never Seen
It Sat Upon My Hand
And Said To Me In A Voice So Soft
I Was A Spirit Of The Lamb

My Soul Was Open My Heart Poured Forth
It Listened With Silent Embrace
And When I Had Finished It Smiled At Me
With Serenity, Peace And Grace
Moments Of Silence As We Shared The Dawn
Then It Whispered It Was Time To Part
And As It Began To Fly Away
A Sudden Lightness Filled My Heart

I Watched In Joy As My Newfound Friend
Returned From Whence It Came
My Fears And Sorrows All Had Been Taken
By The Butterfly With No Name
Had I Seen The Truth Within The Cloud
I Would Have Witnessed A Wondrous Sight
For The Butterfly Became An Angel
Blessed By The One True Light
May The Light Bless Us All And Bring Peace To The World

The emotion in it was perfect, so lighthearted and...pretty, I guess? I don't really know how to describe it, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. :D

It was so very good, and so are your other poems, I just did not have time to leave a comment on all of them but I did read them and they are all good.

This is beautiful! To liken the Holy Spirit as a kind of divinely looking butterfly, is unique thinking. Is this what you experienced when you first got saved? It sounds like it. It almost sounds like my experience when I got saved 37 years ago. :-)

I'm getting a lot of inspiration lately including a very powerful feeling that His return is imminent. Sadly my voice is falling on so many deaf ears including loved ones. I wish I could speak to the world and make them see the folly of their ways. I understand why He said that many are called but few are chosen and my soul weeps for those who refuse to listen. I follow no church just the voice that speaks to me.

According to Scripture, His return is to be imminent without notice: like a thief in the night--no warning. This imminent return was expected in the first century. All we know is that He's coming back, and therefore are to wait and be busy about His work. One thing that could happen before His return is a last chance push on Revival. Every human is or has received a calling (or invitation) from God to be saved before it's too late: death or rapture! The chosen are those who accept the invitation to be saved. I'm afraid there will be fewer getting saved as time draws near; mostly because God's people are slowly drawing further away from Him. I've seen this in the last 30 years.
