May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun.
And find your shoulder to light on.
To bring you luck, happiness, and riches.
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

Truth never dies.  The ages come and go.

  The mountains wear away, the stars retire.

Destruction lays earth’s mighty cities low;

   And empires, states and dynasties expire;

But caught and handed onward by the wise,

  Truth never dies.

It is so unsatisfactory to read a noble passage
and have no one you love at hand
to share the happiness with you.

I dreamed I was a butterfly, flitting around in the sky; then I awoke.
Now I wonder: Am I a man who dreamt of being a butterfly or
am I a butterfly dreaming that I am a man.

Some such Butterfly be seen
On Brazilian Pampas —
Just at noon — no later — Sweet —
Then — the License closes —

Some such Spice — express and pass —
Subject to Your Plucking —
As the Stars — You knew last Night —
Foreigners — This Morning —

We love butterflies

Deciding among flowers

This one or that one.

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.

Fourth and final stage of life

Fluttering in flight.

So far the wildflower season on Mt. Lemmon hasn’t attracted a lot of butterflies. This past Wednesday I was able to capture images of this beautiful Pipevine Swallowtail.
