The Two-tailed Swallowtail is Arizona’s State Butterfly — Image by kenne

“The adult butterfly (also commonly called two-tailed tiger swallowtail) has yellow
to orangish-yellow wings edged thickly with black. Each wing has 4 almost parallel stripes

(the innermost stripe is the longest, while the outermost two may simply be bars).
The hindmost part of each wing has a curved row of blue patches and below the blue
are several bars or spots of orange. Two tails extend from the rear of the hind wing,
with the innermost tail considerably shorter.”

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.

“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.”

Swallowtail

a floating lightness
effortless Waving..
a particle transforming
black to yellow
then to thin air..
lighting on shrub
but not really..
energetic reminder
empty space
is not empty…
