*love And Silk Sheets Comments

Rating: 3.3

From the very first time
We wrapped ourselves
In a chrysalis
Of love and silk sheets,

Symbolically and spiritually, the 'butterfly' has been used to signify new beginnings, and that certainly works well in this poem! Thanks, Lillian! 10+++ John

The metaphor of silk sheets is a beautiful one as you allow me to explore the imagery contained within this gorgeous poem. Butterflies are very spiritual and when a poet writes a butterfly poem I tell them my Mother came back as a butterfly and helped our family overcome a crisis. 10 love Karin

'A chrysalis of love and silk sheets'. A stunning allegory of intimacy delivered with great delicacy. I particularly like the blemishes you share in your love duet which bring this air born piece charmingly down to earth. Flutter is such a beautiful word too. Love, Allie x x x x

It is the warmth of love that wraps you around its soft core. The fluttering butterfly in description of love is beautifully deified in the poem for the butterfly itself is a peculiar insect that spreads the beauty of colors and softness of touch wherever it flies and so does the love. The more you show the tenderness love will come closer making the bondage firm. The purity of love is well described by one of the Natures beautiful creatures, Lillian. Warm Regards Naseer

'Love and Silk Sheets' - from chrysalis to butterly - a beautiful allusion and a stunning metamorphosis. S :)

Love is like a butterfly, it goes where it pleases and it pleases where it goes. The smili of an insect becoming an insignia of love has really beautified this poem describing the flourishing sequence of love and that then transforming into something really divine.True love when pursued is indeed beyond our grasp......
