The Butterfly Dance

The Butterfly Dance

A Poem by Neville

The Butterfly Dance

 

Imagine for a moment

Maybe two

Being one half of that pair of

Swallow tailed butterflies over there

 

Perpetually engaged

In their own aerial ballet

Maintaining between them

A perfectly formed inverted double helix

 

Lifted by warm thermals

Hovering motionless in the air

Carried off by the breeze to who knows where

Now how cool is that

?

How did I miss this gem? I had to look up inverted double helix and then I was able to fully understand this beautiful dance by the butterflies. I paused to reflect the sheer beauty and perfect harmony. There is much that nature can teach us. I wanna be one of those butterflies for a day. Lovely work Neville. Fabulous imagery in your final stanza, such fragile perfection.

Well, what can I say that hasn't already been said about this Neville? What, I'm serious, tell me? :)
The image this conjures in the mind is exactly as described, an aerial ballet, with some wonderfully lilting music playing and colours flitting into patterns that we still see when we look away. Excellent, awesome and brilliant.

The Dance of the Double-helix... “There would be no living cells, let alone humans, if the two DNA strands making up double-helix molecules of DNA remained forever entwined. Butterflies 🦋 dance to our being who we are. Your poetry lives in their movements of separation.

I think we all have those moments, wondering what it's like to be something other than who we are.
