Variegated wings that flutter,
flushed with summer’s vibrant colour
harmonized with vivid veins.
Exquisite fibres plucked from skeins,
deftly stripped and finely threaded
through its splendid silks, then wedded
by the hand of pure perfection,
as the master makes selection;
mixes, blends and gently hones,
marrying the tints and tones.
Reflected glory from above;
In the detail there is love.
