Butterfly Rhymes With Dragonfly   Leave a comment

Butterfly 

rhymes with dragonfly

and water with 

life.

Butterflies

circle up and down

between my eyes.

Why was it

the butterfly

and not 

the dragonfly?

Each carries the 

inside of my soul.

Journey

I have seen the wind’s tails
the breeze’s buds.
I have seen the griffon bird
& Delgadina’s tower.

Where do you come from,
o where?

I have seen a blue road
& some girls
were singing the old ballad
of the olive tree in green.

Do you know where I come from,
my sweet girl?
Well . . . from your smile is where,
your last smile.

— Federico Garcia Lorca

Painted Lady — Zen Art   Leave a comment

NogalesPainted Lady — Zen Art by kenne

“Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly,
fluttering hither and thither,
to all intents and purposes a butterfly.
I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly,
unaware that I was myself. Soon I awaked,
and there I was, veritably myself again.
Now I do not know whether I was then
a man dreaming I was a butterfly,
or whether I am now a butterfly,
dreaming I am a man.”

— Zhuangzi

It is essential to naturalist doctrine that literature,
to be good, must, finally,

be the author’s experience worked out literally.

A Light Exists In Spring

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period —
When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay —

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.

— Emily Dickinson
