Wise as an Jaguar and Peaceful as a Butterfly in a Daily Dose of Peace
A Daily Dose of Peace. Each week, I focus on Love, Joy, and Peace in the world languages. January’s fifth week focuses on Costa Rican Guatuso or Maléku Jaíka in Central America.
Peaceful Blue Butterflies
In Maléku a language of Costa Rica
“fufu” is the name of the giant blue
a symbol of peace, love and good luck
In this culture
the owl represents wisdom
wise and able to see
a fierce and wise leader
passionate about the land
and the environment
