    There is something about your spirit that reminds me of a butterfly once covered in the shell of a caterpillar and forced to inch along on the branch of a tree, unable to take flight until the metamorphosis of life changed you into the beautiful winged creature of light that you are

    Or maybe your like the precious diamond whose beauty only shines once the fire and intense pressures of life and adversity have removed the layers of carbon and ash that might have been you

    like the Butterfly that was forced to once move like a Snail and the diamond that once looked like any other rock, deep inside your soul was the blueprint for the beautiful creature that you are and no matter what others may see or not see you are and always have been a diamond in flight.

    we all evolve, over time, into who we are...

    it is the deep observer who see below the surface...and find the beauty below.

    THANKS for sharing.

    Shaz ... to be able to see one's beauty before it has been
    actually manifested to the world ... while it is still that lump
    of coal or that creepy crawly snail ...
    says as much about you as the diamond you view

    i love this peace

    thank you for sharing it

    the comparisons you have made here to the diamond and the butterfly is awesome...two of the most beautiful things nature can produce, combined to form an even greater beauty..the soul/spirit of a beautiful person....

    this was breathtaking.....
