mr bojangles


earthquakes shaking

the lands

desert trees

quivering singing

mr bojangles so calm

inside while the world

is breaking

all around falling


but not here

two guitars and a violin

a dog

called pretty and flowers

on the table like a scene

from a movie

door’s voice touching

my soul so deep


i’ve been reborn

again today

my skin is still hot

my body

still rocking

i’m in a dream

a dream

in the desert where

many have walked

in my body nude

on this rock

in the sun this

desert feeds my soul

what a magical place

it is

i think we can change

the world

with our love

Butterflies Everywhere


These beautiful creatures have been showing up a lot these days..

this photo was taken in Montana just after the butterfly emerged from cocoon.. if you look closely you’ll see that the part of the wings that appear blue are still curled, revealing the underside of the wings.
