Butterfly Muse

A verse creation metaphor.

Tortoiseshell Butterfly by the Author

Pristine, perfect pale leaves beckon. Greedily
Gorging words in a caterpillar scrawl
Accretion of ideas, phrases forming
The metamorphic challenge yet to come
Constrained in pre-set form and wrapped in metre
Shuffle, change and rearrange, to somehow
Bring rhythm that sighs like butterfly kisses
Lines that flit and flutter by, wings beating
Paint a vision of such delicate beauty
From chrysalis…
