“I discovered in nature the nonutilitarian delights that I sought in art.
Both were a form of magic, both were a game of intricate enchantment and deception.”

I’ve watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly!  Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! – not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!

~William Wordsworth, “To a Butterfly”

In the meadow of the valley, 
Where wild flowers are roaming free.
There are multitudes of colors
And their backdrop forest greens.

Matching the morning flowers
Early at sunrise.

This butterfly has arrived,

I watch wondering

if it knows of its 

new freedom

still holding on to a host 

in a new beautiful  

yet tragic existence  

with three perceptions 

of life in one world.
