The Butterfly Effect - Poem 9


Today's poem is part of my attempt to write one every day in April - Poetry Month. I'm taking inspiration from the visual prompts at Bud the Teacher's blog. Today's prompt was a butterfly. No, I didn't go for a metamorphosis theme, or talk about the beauty of nature. I took my inspiration from Ray Bradbury's story - "A Sound of Thunder". 

The Butterfly Effect

If a fluttering wing
Can change a timeline --

Or treading on a
Single butterfly
Forever alters
The course of humanity

Imagine what a
Word can do.
