this is a growing season,
of change, of turning, of shedding,
of letting things fall away,
and fall apart, and come undone,
and be uncovered
and then a space of surrender,
and being, just being.
and the reflections here are temporary,
so take them in and honor them,
and be honest with them, and own them…
but then forgive them,
and don’t stay in them
let it all go… let yourself bloom.

The butterflies rising poem ‘this is a growing season, of change, of turning, of shedding’ is published in both of butterflies rising’s poetry books and in her poetry inspiration journal. The poem was something she wrote about the most raw and honest parts of the journey of self-discovery that we go through. There are seasons that ask us to grow from our deepest and often darkest places, and they ask us to get incredibly honest and with who are, who have been, and who we want to become. butterflies rising wrote this poem to be a bit of comfort and inspiration for those seasons. While we are facing those parts of ourselves, we can also be gentle with ourselves and love ourselves through it. And we don’t have to stay in the dark places forever… we are allowed to heal and grow and to eventually bloom.
