Learning About Butterflies 2010

           Learning About Butterflies

I watched a caterpillar cross the road.

A fuzzy irresistible.

Not patient all the time, but

Focussing by discipline and fascination

(scared she’d be run over.

I was there to stop a car)

I watched as she

Dug into moss so slowly

That she tested me.

She dug by millimeters

Disappeared in/under…

Now I know a little more.
