“To know the way, 
we go the way, 
we do the way.
The way we do,
the things we do,
it’s all there in front of you.
But if you try too hard to see it,
you’ll only become confused.
I am me and you are you.
As you can see; 
but when you do 
the things that you can do, 
you will find the way.
The way will follow you.” 
― Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

Great Purple Hairstreak — Mission Accomplished   1 comment

Great Purple Hairstreak On Patio Wall (1 of 1)-4 blog

After a morning run
on a chilly desert morning,
I walked out on the patio
with a cup of black coffee.

Noticing a
Great Purple Hairstreak

on the patio floor, motionless
from the forties temperature,

And wanting to help her
on her morning flight,
I placed her in the sun
on the patio wall

Where she fail on her side
a couple of times
before finally steadying
herself
in the sunlight.

Taking longer
than expected
for her to take flight,
I went inside for more coffee.

Returning to the patio, 
the countdown was completed,
I had missed her liftoff —
Mission accomplished.
