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”

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.

“Every man’s foremost task
is the actualization of his unique, 

unprecedented and never-recurring potentialities,
and not the repetition of something that another, 
and be it even the greatest, has already achieved.”

― Martin Buber
