Aphrodite Breaches Cocoon

Aphrodite Breaches Cocoon

written by: Stuart M. Klimek


A butterfly circled, dancing effortlessly,
Flying gracefully, hailing inflorescent jewels.
Knitted lepidopterans, masquerading naiads,
Opening pliantly, quiveringly, raddled silk threads,
Undressed — vibrant wayfarers
Xochipilli’s youthful zeal.



Lepidotera is the order of insects that includes the butterfly and moth
Xochipilli (“Flower Prince”) is the god of beauty, dance, and flowers in Aztec mythology
