Blooms For Two ...



“Just as the bird sings or the butterfly soars, because it is his natural characteristic, so the artist works.”
                     ~ Alma Gluck
                                    ~ 1884-1938

A pair of white butterflies sip nectar on a sweet summer afternoon in late August at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

The Dance ...



"Ballet in the air ...
twin butterflies
until, twice white
they meet, they
mate."
                        ~ Matsuo Basho
                                      ~ 1644-1694
                                                    ~ Japanese Haiku

Mating white butterflies seem to do a delicate dance
alighted on a leaf along the Ironton Rail Trail,
Whitehall, Pennsylvania on a June evening.

Small Wonder ...


"The magnificent butterfly finds a little heap of dirt
and sits on it; but man will never on his heap of 
mud keep still."
                                ~ Joseph Conrad
                                                      1857-1924

This white butterfly finds a shady spot in the mud
to sip some moisture yesterday at
Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Butterfly Kisses ...


"Love is like a butterfly. It settles upon you when you least expect it."
