Sullivan’s Island Beach — Photo-Artistry by kenne

"Let me disclose the gifts reserved for age
   To set a crown upon your lifetime's effort. 
   First, the cold friction of expiring sense
Without enchantment, offering no promise 
   But bitter tastelessness of shadow fruit 
   As body and soul begin to fall asunder.
Second, the conscious impotence of rage 
   At human folly, and the laceration 
   Of laughter at what ceases to amuse.
And last, the rending pain of re-enactment 
   Of all that you have done, and been; the shame
   Of motives late revealed, and the awareness
Of things ill done and done to others' harm
   Which once you took for exercise of virtue."

-- T. S. Eliot, Four Quartets

Cloudless Sulphur Butterfly Art — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“Thou winged blossom, liberated thing,
What secret tie binds thee to other flowers,
Still held within the garden’s fostering?
Will they too soar with the completed hours,
Take flight, and be like thee
Irrevocably free,
Hovering at will o’er their parental bowers?

Or is thy luster drawn from heavenly hues,—
A sumptuous drifting fragment of the sky,
Caught when the sunset its last glance imbues
With sudden splendor, and the tree-tops high
Grasp that swift blazonry,
Then lend those tints to thee,
On thee to float a few short hours, and die?”

— from Ode to a Butterfly by Thomas Wentworth Higginson

Dragonfly On Point — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Late August,

Aging colors change
In desert wetlands
Pensive like a sharp turn.

And yet,
What persistence
Balanced as perchance?

Flying for meters
Only to go back
To the same point.
