"The Blue Butterfly"


The stars were fast asleep on the clouds.
Little birds were sleeping in their nests,
and the man in the moon was smiling down on me.
Very quietly, the sandman tip toed,,,,
to my bed, and sprinkled stardust into my sleepy eyes.
As my eyes began to close,
a dream whisked me away,,,
to a land far, far away.

There was bubbling streams,
and green grass,
and the sky was filled with butterfly wings
and magic bubbles,
and flowers of every color.
Blue butterflys were everywhere!
Their wings flitted and fluttered.
Oh how I wish that I could fly!
I wish I could flit like the butterflys!

Higher into the sky their wings lifted them.
Higher and higher
and then they swirled around me
and landed on my tail.

"Miss butterfly,, Your the most magical of all butterflys.
will you teach me to fly". I asked?

And it was at that moment, the blue butterfly took my paw.
Quietly she whispered,
" Tweedles, close your eyes, and count to three, and together we will fly!"
"You must believe you can fly"
Suddenly, I was floating in the breeze, just like the butterflys.
We flitted here and we flitted there,
the blue butterflys and I.
It was so fun to have wings and flit like the butterfly!

Now I know for sure that dreamland is a magical place
where dreams always come true.
And I will always remember
the wisdom of the blue butterfly ,....
"I can be anything that I want to be, if I just believe".
Nitey nite
love
tweedles

Hi Tweedles! I just love the pictures of you and the butterflies. You are so beautiful and peaceful. I think if I had a bed as cool and colorful as yours I'd have lots of great dreams too! Maybe the blue butterfly will visit me tonight. Have a dreamy weekend!
Love,

Oh Tweedles, the blue butterfly is beautiful and very wise. Maybe she will help you fly my way for a visit! These are such sweet pictures and lovely words!

Your pal, Pip

I love butterflies Tweedles - because while their life is short - they waste no time - living. They bat their wings so hard to get out of the cocoon and then when they come out they are beautiful. Then they live life to the fullest beautifully. We should take a lesson and BELIEVE!

George the Lad said...

Tweedles that is beautiful, I will keep the blue butterfly in my mind and believe.
Have a good week
See yea George xxx

That pesky Blue Morpho was following Tweedles everywhere. How magical!

Tiffy said...

Oh, Tweedles, your story was simply magical! I closed my eyes while Momma read me your story and soon I was flying with you and the blue butterfly. We saw the most amazing things, didn't we?

We don't have many blue butterflies here. We mostly have orange, yellow, and black ones, so please send your blue butterflies in your magical bubble to my house.

Hi sweet Tweedles!!!!

So sorry that we're commenting DAYS later...my secretary is a SLACKER!!!!

We just loved your bedtime story about the blue butterfly! You even inspired mom to dig out an old necklace with a butterfly on it that she wore to her first day of first grade (waaaay back in 1976!) She put the butterfly on a longer necklace and started wearing it again all because of you!

Sending you lots of love and kisses!

Love,
S-Dog
(and the slacker secretary!)

Oh sweet Tweedles. What a wonderful story with a message that we all need to remember.

I can imagine you flying, with those paper-thin wings keeping you aloft. What a vision. My eyes are closed and I'm visualizing it.

Butterflies amaze me. I was riding my bike into a stiff wind, and a butterfly was going faster than me *into* the wind. Simply amazing.

Thanks for the bedtime story. Nitey night.
