Stories from the farm – a closer look at the people, the place and the bio-diversity at 5EyesFarm

Butterfly poetry

Never has black been so velvet. Stare for even a moment, and it draws you into a vast abyss of mesmerising travel. It is the black of all colours shimmering with none at all – Hues with echoes of rainbow. This black absorbs light without quenching it. It reinterprets shadow, and as each wing flutters, as each movement takes place, it slows down time against the hurried movement of the Mormon on the wing. It is at this time of year that we will see her. She is looking to lay. No butterfly comes close to her veiled beauty or the enigmatic smile of the Mormon Butterfly.
