butterfly

butterfly s

sun casts its
eye on winged shadows,
dancing in
to the day–
tossed by light waves that play with
dappled melodies

I’ve been wanting to do another butterfly painting, and the dVerse prompt from Laura, flights of fancy, provided the perfect excuse.

    I love this poem and art.
    “tossed by light waves that play with
    dappled melodies” So perfectly describes it.

    Shadow and light at the same time certainly describes a butterfly.

    Such dappled beauty, and sadly, so short-lived. It kind of fuels the old axiom that something/one can be too perfect, too beautiful for this world. Both paintings are boffo.

    Yes, butterflies are tossed on an ocean of light. I love that solemn butterfly with its cat face.

    “sun casts its eye on winged shadows” what a great line, K. The butterflies are happy to oblige their wings.

    Lovely descriptions, Kerfe. This painting is beautiful. I can remember creating these double sided artworks when I was in high school.

    I see a wonderful dance of light and color transforming into a winged form, but I also see more. The curious imagination can have a playful journey into your piece of art. A baby hippo makes itself known and more. 🙂
