BLUE BUTTERFLIES

Just life. Around us and inside us.



Blue butterflies
flapping
their wings in
the sunshine
vivid vibrations
across my eyes

a shimmering
cloud of
metal lights
flying
swiftly above
the boughs

Can you hear
the light steps
of scales
running
up an ear
of grass?

the song
in the cypress nuts
gone rolling
down the drive
calling for the dancing
butterflies?

VOLEE DE GRAINES

Education :
Réformes en Finlande


Volée de graines
aux oiseaux du ciel
n'est d'aucun profit

D'autres
picoreront la manne
tombée à  terre

l'utilitaire des mésanges
n'étant pas comparable
à celui  des poulets.



A volley of seeds
will not profit
any song bird

Other birds
will happily peck
the fallen manna

Anyway, bluetits
are not as useful
as chicken.
