Shadow Shot Sunday #9 @ Hey, Harriet

Iron Butterfly

I see through you with awe
as you morph, strong
into a beautiful winged creature
of mystery and brief beauty.

With dreams of nectar filled fields
I follow you
hoping for a glimpse of what will become
down the stony path
of reflected light.

Perfect shot and an even more perfect poem, is that poem written by you? It just suits your photo perfectly. I adore your pink humble abode by the way, what a perfect place to create. :0)

The poem when read in the surface is rich in imagery. I could block eyes from looking the picture and still paint a lovely image in my thoughts with your words.

But what made this piece extra special is the underlying meaning that's more profound than what's just showing in the surface when read again and taking the meaning that surface between the lines.

I like the strength of character beneath the graceful facade, I like the feminine power thats presented in a lovely way.

I thought our Filipino women present a delicate front but with an iron-heart strength.

I thought my mom is a graceful strong-willed butterfly.

I wish you well.

The fragile, delicate beauty of your butterfly shadow is just enchanting!

And your poem! I can't believe what is pouring out of you! With a few words, you fill a canvas with light and jewelled depth! Wonderful!

And thank you for the kudos, but the ultimate gift is yours!
