Large White butterfly (Pieris brassicae): photo by Alvesgaspar, May 2008






white butterfly
..................dancing albino speck
......................................tiny hanky

...........................scarfs

..................................the swiss chard

there in the entero-system I imagine it cool

...................................Switzerland!

........pale sweet pea snows.......wild radish lakes

.........................CABBAGE MOTH

on a day like this your thirst is easy to identify with

at five o’clock.......eighty degrees of

wild July fire-and-jewel spectrum

humming bird..... goat bell..... bluejay feather etc.

but what about the
{ other / "real" } butterflies

.....what about the frogs?

They’re back in muddy February


.......................................“in mothballs”

Fifteen hundred
humming feathers fly—
oh snap!

Beautiful, that's it exactly.

Would that we were so quick.

Terrific to hear from you.
