butterfly flutterby

there is no comma no question here

for these are no punctuation marks you see

those dung loving relations are near

under leaves taking tea

these their sun loving cousins flutter

visiting flowers with cushiony heads

wings and petals move to utter

words vibrating riverbeds

the garden has space to fly or rest

vast are the notes to harmony

when each is attuned to what key fits best

dissolving into the boundless sea

  1. What beautiful photos 😉 Love the butterflies and coneflowers, and we are enjoying much the same delightful visitors here. Thank you for the beautiful peaches you sent us. How lovely your fruits have grown this summer 😉 We will enjoy them so much and appreciate your kindness. Have encouraged your mother to take time where you suggested- we know it well and love that healing place. We have been greatly blessed by the healing salve you sent us a few months ago. it is wonderful for so many things, and we have used it all. May we purchase another tin of it from you? If you have some made, please let us know your price and we will send it with your mother when she returns later this month. Our love to all- E

      Thanks, the butterflies have been gloriously happy this year and are fluttering wherever the eye rests outside. The peach tree shared fruits with us in this her fourth year since planting, very exciting! Glad you are enjoying them too, we’re making a wild fermented country wine with the skins and cut off bits that I’m curious to taste . ..
      With the salves, I have a 4 oz. tin ready of what I call ~everything balm~ which is as the name suggests what we use for*everything* (bites, scratches, burns, cracked chapped skin, rashes, aches, brusies, bumps, itching, gardening hands, etc.) . .. . it is 25. The balm you had (muscle/stiffness/aches relief) was in a 4 oz. tin also and I’ll be making that again in the fall (the oils for it are infusing yet with pine and birch pickings, so it has to wait a while till readiness) . .. if you send me the tin back I’ll set it aside for you when I make it again in the fall, let me know if you want the Everything Balm for now. I have an 8 oz. tin of horsetail, prunella, and burdock salve that’s intended for cracked, ragged, bitten nails and those hard areas on the edges of one’s toes/sides of the heels of the feet, a hand and foot salve, it may be of use to you as far as gardener’s hands and itchy bug bitten skin goes . . . the price for that is 35. A happy Tuesday to you and S 🙂

      1. Creekrose, we enjoyed a few of your peaches as the middle layer of your sister’s oatmeal cinnamon delight last night. Your mom shared the recipe, which she made for me with marmalade and apricots jam. I substitute blackberry jam, sliced peaches and a sprinkling of blueberries. Rumi on the tastebuds, it is 😉 Your peaches are at that perfect stage of ripeness and so sweet. I believe we’ll enjoy a few more with breakfast 😉 I believe my husband has been using the balm you sent us as for ‘everything.’ If you will please share with us the true ‘everything’ balm now, I will return the original tin in anticipation of a refill when the aches relief balm comes ready this fall. I will pass on the 8oz tin, but thank you for the offer of the moisturizer.
        A happy Tuesday to you and yours. He is already out of doors enjoying this beautiful morning, and here I still sit at the computer! Giant hugs, WG ❤
