A bright afternoon

no vultures circling

only butterflies 

landing briefly

as if to change 

the decision to land 

yellows and reds

muscling their way 

through leaves of green.

Colors of butterfly images

depend heavily on lighting

and angle of the sunlight,

which can make identification

a challenge for novice

I dreamed I was a butterfly,

flitting around in the sky; then I awoke.

Now I wonder: Am I a man

who dreamt of being a butterfly,

or am I a butterfly

dreaming that I am a man?
