Butterfly Queen

Updated on August 30, 2013
Source

I fell in love... I tried to fly
just let me go... up to the sky
I do know... what happened
but I don't know... why
when I saw the Queen...of the Butterfly's


Her grotto lay ..in darkened cove
with glorious light .. a treasure trove
of subjects fraught ..too many to speak
this was the heaven... I did seek
My heart was taken ..but not forsaken
for now she waits.. with wings aloft
holding my heart .. so very soft

      Oh, my goodness, Michael, this is stunning in both imagery (which I know is hard to find the perfect image) and your phenomenal and beautiful words as to the "Queen Butterfly."

      Interestingly enough, I have never heard of such Queen Butterfly before (so thank you), only a Queen Bee... lol, so I Googled it, and to my surprise, the Queen Butterfly is oh so interesting indeed! The males will patrol all day in search of the Queen Butterfly. However, the predators of such Queen Butterfly, once tasting her, are warned and associate her bright colors with such as that of an unpleasant meal... guess she uses it as a defense mechanism against predators. Fascinating stuff. This North and South African beauty, the Danaus glilippus or Queen Butterfly, can also be found in Florida and South Texas during her flights in July-August. So, look, but do not taste of the beautiful Queen Butterfly! lol (I guess the researcher in me always has to go in search of when I am unfamiliar with such ... that is how we learn...by doing so!)

      Seriously, your poetry is always the best of the best and most stunning visually in word and imagery, and it shows you take much time in writing such beauty and in choosing the perfect imagery.

      Have a glorious weekend.

      Hugs and love, Faith Reaper
