Butterfly

A Poem by Ty

Butterfly.

"
A Butterfly and her cocoon
Beginning, future, and past.
Mask
A task that made sense
And I'd fly away if gravity didn't exist
Transfusion of feelings, colors, and pendulums,
Swinging forward and back
Black tailored lineage
Interested and intricate
The butterfly
Beautiful in her own right
I figured we're guarded and sheltered
The cocoon bestowed in night
Awaiting to emerge,
Expressing self and light
Daffodil and Cadmium Yellow
The butterfly
She coasts and drifts
Sways and lifts with each breeze
Climbed to the top of skyscrapers,
The Empire State
Teetering
Neither falling or swinging,
I'd fly away if gravity didn't exist.

I would too Ty! Exquisite image and poem...I saw so many huge yellow-black Monarchs up in the mountains. Each one was like a message from God- they left me breathless and awestruck. Your poem captures their beauty, freedom and transitional transcendence so very well. Kudos!

Beautiful. I interpreted it as a dual meaning...a butterfly, but also as a girl wanting to be free. Love this.

Thank you for dropping in. The butterfly is anyone!
Damn gravity, eh?
Love how the lines lift and sway, floating through the images you portray.
