Nailed it. So to speak.
absolutely perfect. the pen is a sword.
Stabbing butterflies by a not so good atheist appeals to my dark humour:)
Indeed like butterflies words ca fly anywhere and spread the pollen!!
Great use of metaphor in your poem! Once written down words help us to understand what was just fleeting around us indeed.
As Gabriella said, excellent metaphor. I do think sometimes we find different meanings in even our own words when they are 'held fast' on the page for a while.
You capture word, butterflies and irony here--how much easier to see and how very very dead!
Ha1 What J Cosmo said.
Very well written.
Oh, this is succinct and perfect - "to better understand the shades of meaning on their wings"
It's like all those exquisite little birds that just won't hold still long enough to get a good look at them.

Short & crisps like the 'Metaphors' by Sylvia Plath. I enjoyed it, thanks.
