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

Surphur Butterflies on Creosole Bush Blossoms In Sabino Canyon (July 27, 2021) — Images by kenne 

The recent monsoon rains have greened up the canyon, bringing out a lot of butterflies.
Unfortunately, I only had my 18-70 mm lens, so trying to photograph
the mostly surphur butterflies became challenging.

“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies:
know more today about the world than I knew
yesterday and lessen the suffering of others.
You’d be surprised how far that gets you.”

Happiness is a butterfly,

which when pursued,

is always just beyond your grasp,

but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

Indigo Blue

I paint you

pixie green

in a background

of indigo blue

as you kiss

the last red

and yellow

bird of paradise

blossoms

as the contrasting

colors

of late summer

soothe the soul.

What has to be given up is not the I,
as most mystics suppose:
this I is indispensable for any relationship,
including the highest,
which always presupposes an I and You.

Capturing yet another image,

later framing it for viewing

he thinks when viewed

through another’s eye,

his signature moment will remain.

Ode To A Butterfly

Butterfly, oh butterfly, why do you hide in the shadows? 
Spread wide your wings, let your heart sing
And come dance with me in the meadow

Butterfly, oh butterfly, why do you fear? 
You’ll never stray, I’ll lead the way
Just follow the path, I’ll be near

Butterfly, oh butterfly, have you no hope? 
Drink of the sun, our life’s just begun
Thro time’s hills and valleys we’ll lope 

Butterfly, oh butterfly, dare you to dream? 
On our hearts we depend, shall we follow the wind
And consign to the fates grander scheme? 

Sheri Hockman
