The Butterfly Dance

by Brianna Chiles

I looked at his hand as he asked me to dance
For hours I'd longed and now was my chance

I shook my head shyly and said, "No, I can't."
He took my hand wryly and said, "Yes you can.

"Just follow the butterflies up in the trees
"They don't tap or sway, but fly with the breeze."

My gaze shifted upwards then became entranced
How simple, yet thrilling, a butterfly's dance

The delicacy yet purpose, each flutter of wing
The childlike majesty left me gasping

"How do you dance like the butterflies do?"
"First you circle me then I'll circle you."

I glanced back up at the yellow romantics
A hard act to follow if you add the antics

Never once did we touch, 'twas a butterfly dance
Yet it did feel as such, 'twas a butterfly's romance.

Sit Still, My Daughter

by Brianna Chiles

He's asked me to wait, with His wisdom respected
To leave all to Him
But such dreams I've collected!

How can His way be better than mine?
A question that doesn't make sense
Yet all think from time to time

It will become obvious if we just wait and see
And, granted, it's hard
But perhaps it should be 

To just sail through life, given all that we asked for?
No surprises to excite
Just insistence to have more?

Though we don't like to admit it, God does know what's best
Sometimes it's painful
But that's part of His test

The thought of a test sometimes is frightening
What must I do, or not do?
And answers at times are less than enlightening

To ponder is fine and questions are good
Wait though for action
God will reply as only God could.



(I forget when I wrote this one)

dang that's mean, Jake!




"Three rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf-lords in halls of stone,
Nine for mortal men doomed to die, one for the Dark Lord on his dark throne In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. In the land of Mordor where the shadow lie."
-J.R.R Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings.
