I interpret this as being about a Monarch Butterfly trapped in a spider's web? Regardless, it is an excellent poem, with mysterious circumstances, but with good structure, and a good story line. It is mystifying in mood, and has much poetic eloquence in the writing!
Very intriguing. I loved the imagery, I'm a very visual person. The rhyme scheme was interesting as well, it took me a moment to make it out. The entire piece could use some more puncuation, to even out the beat. (But that's only a suggestion.) Overall, a decent poem. The first line is demanding an explanation of some sort.
Beautiful imagery! Not sure I like the image so much, but that's just because I'm not into anything describing death of any creature... Everything worked really well, except the last stanza... The last 2 lines just... didn't work for me... Somehow I just don't think the spider would care much that the monarch once had life... Other than that, it was absolutely excellent!
Wow, I'm glad that I chose to look into your work of art here. After you left me that review, I read quite a few of your entries out of curiousity and this currently featured title is by far the best. I admire your brutal yet beautiful style very much. "The Monarch" will shortly be added into my favorites.
