Caught Between: A Poem

Caught between

Needing empty 
eyeless time 

weighed down 
by exhaustion

And butterfly-mind 

wanting to flit 
through fullness 

all eyes and wings

A (female?) tailed emperor butterfly, photographed 1st April 2014


  1. Such a beautiful butterfly!
    And I loved your photos of the birds among the fuchsia flowers. Are fuchsias native there? I have an old (maybe 25 years old) fuchsia houseplant that I take out when summer comes.

    I hope you´ll feel better soon.

    1. Thank you, Hilja. It was an amazing butterfly.

      Fuchsias aren't native here, but we have a couple of bushes in our garden, beloved of bees and the eastern spinebill.

      Thank you for your kind wishes.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you.
