Massage Therapy as a Doorway to Recover Vision and Hope

Blue Morpho Butterfly Wing and Vision Story by Shelby Cohron on Unsplash

Blue Morpho Butterfly

I remember / a visual memory / a giant blue butterfly / eight years old / I see / then I couldn’t / darkness descended / hope out of reach / healing like crazy / again I see / details in the wings / an eye / a smiling mouth along the edges / like a fishes mouth and eye / a face / brown shiny with blue / white ridges like snow on mountain ranges / the black visible not darkness / I see / and write ekphrastic poetry / a response to what I see.
