IMAGO

The picture was precious. The infantilism made one breathless. The pupa indolence was exquisite in form. I watched those transmogrifications transform. Diamonds in the ruff would bring the monarch prosperity. The rarities of their beauty confound. The eyes behold profoundly. Their wings formed from the cocoon. The pupa stage is now devoured. One day it will become more than just a flight. They will develop a sensitivity to their fight. They will know that the wind is not to embrace. Therefore, they will find a safe haven from the storm. They will live their life span because they have been informed that they are diamonds in the ruff. The imagery of animation has been defined. A diamond in the ruff is within those lines in which the writer metaphors life to the imagination as a chrysalis stage. Sagaciously seen via phases is eruditely engaged. Imago sexually matured but diamonds in the ruff until life formed is to procure greater days. The butterfly will always affect nature ways. Diamonds in the ruff are sages. ________________________________| PENNED ON JUNE 12, 2014!

My twitter address is @poetscott37. The link goes there, and people follow that link to your poem here. Your poem does not leave Poetry Soup, so the protection of Soup remains the same. And it looks to me as though you got about 30 odd new reads since I posted the link. Be that from Soup of Twitter I don't know, but it does seem to be the usual number.

Bravo Verlena!!! What a superb final line my Sage of sugared philosophy. Absolutely love your vocabulary too, the perfect words for the perfect perception of life made Art. " The rarities of their beauty confound..." as all majesty does Verlena, like high caliber philosophical literature does. J.A.B.

I am not that knowledgable about insects but I know good writing and this certainly falls under the definition. 7!

This is metaphorically written about diamonds in the ruff. Thanks for your supportive remarks Rick. A butterfly is wise because he/she knows how to survive. Verlena :0))s
