invaded by butterflies...



Wake, butterfly –
it’s late, we’ve miles
to go together.
Basho

You the butterfly –
I, Chuang Tzu’s
dreaming heart.

a rose from a friend's garden...


The Rose Family

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose -
But were always a rose.

empty vase...


According to feng shui, an empty vase or bowl (or two)
outside your front door, preferrably of pottery, will bring
new beginnings into your life. It is also a cure for homes
that face the wrong direction.

little cousins...

What are little girls made of?
What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice, and all things nice;
That's what little girls are made of.
Nursery rhyme

vento...wind...

A South Wind—has a pathos

719

A South Wind—has a pathos
Of individual Voice—
As One detect on Landings
An Emigrant's address.

A Hint of Ports and Peoples—
And much not understood—
The fairer—for the farness—
And for the foreignhood.

Emily Dickinson
