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.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
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
