Contributor Series 5: Dramatis Personae
Sisterhood of the Butterfly
By Jeanette Cheezum

I release a balloon and a butterfly
to find my sisters wherever they are.
To bring them strength, love, and
maturity in times of happiness
and sorrow. I cherish you sisters
go fly and be free.

Jeanette Cheezum’s poetry appeared at vox poetica in 2009 and 2010. Her most recent poem, For Valentine’s Day, appeared in February 2010.
