Butterflies of Saturn

Here are butterflies that skip Dull steps of metamorphosis No isolation in coocoons No gorging grubs like fat balloons Pure genesis on snow kissed flowers Comes with no imperiled hours Their slow, eternal life begun Beneath a pink pearlescent sun Reflecting tints from rainbows born With pastel lights of endless dawn Transcend through fabled time and myth To form the rings of Saturn's mist.

From the terrestrial ... to the celestial. You have quite the imagination, my poetic friend. "Pure genesis on snow kissed flowers" what a splendid line. I think that butterflies are one of those creatures where you look and all you can say is ...... how?? Makes one wonder why we indulge in fantasy, when reality is already quite fantastical ... (course I still return to my books). Your poem is pure imagination on snow kissed pages ... a fave.
