Butterfly (Acrostic)

by Michael   May 30, 2017

Blossomed from a magical crystal weave
Unfurled from a glistened silky demure
Transformed into a vibrant animation of
Truly enchanting winged creatures, an
Essence of Mother Natures emotion's
Releasing beautiful and spiritual
Flutters, from her colourful heart with
Love, to
You and me

    I really like this poem, because despite popular belief it can be difficult to master an acrostic. But you penned this well. The wording you used was great because the reader can picture this well. And you get to see the butterfly transform into something beautiful.

    I do believe however this is a metaphor. I believe the butterfly could be someone you know or you, yourself. In life we all go through struggles and we sometimes grow into our own wings and colours so to speak. So metaphorically this could be some who has struggled but have grown into their wings. Wonderful and Beautiful write!

      Hi Jamie
      Firstly thank you so much for your lovely comments.

      I don't feel it's about what is true of this piece. What is wonderful is how you feel from your reading perspective. So I love that readers have their own analogy of written poetry, which is sometimes the magic and beauty of creative writing. And I really enjoyed reading your take :)

      Thank you
