Floating in a watercolor sky,
Lifted up, and ever higher up,
Riding warm rivers of air.
Sailing freely above a peaceful sea;
Seeking nothing, seeing no one,
Knowing only light and dark, heat and cool,
Fog and rain.
You dance, playing with golden sunlight as it falls to Earth.
Sky sculptor, peopling the troposphere
With sylphs and rainbows, giants and dragons.
Every myth begins and ends in your embrace.
Floating in, creeping off the waves onto the strand,
You blur every boundary.
Misty, dreamily, relentlessly you descend;
Leaving even Earthbound beings

“Is it possible to become friends with a butterfly?”
“It is if you first become a part of nature.
You suppress your presence as a human being,
stay very still, and convince yourself
that you are a tree or grass or a flower.
It takes time,
but once the butterfly lets its guard down,
you can become friends quite naturally.”
