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.”

Mexican Yellow on a Mexican Bird of Paradice   1 comment

SCVN Nature Walk 08-15-12, Marshall GulchMexican Yellow Butterfly on a Mexican Bird of Paradice — Image by kenne

Many butterfly images
before one good one.

Another butterfly
flies by, I focus
on a yellow one.

Snap, and Snap again,
trying to be invisible
in the bright sunlight.

A cloud moves by,
shooting manually,
I change settings.

Why shoot manual?
Prefer working with
options, having choices.

The sun comes back out
only to give way
to more clouds.

Wind gusts 
move the flowers
as butterflies move on —

it is the monsoon season,
distant thunder

is a reminder.

Wonder — is not precisely Knowing
And not precisely Knowing not — 
A beautiful but bleak condition
He has not lived who has not felt —

— Emily Dickinson
