      Tropical White Butterflies ~ http://insects.org/index.html

      music: Lullaby2.mid from http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Panhala/ 


      white butterfly
      darting among pinks -
      whose spirit?

      ~  shiki ~

      the butterfly too
      on the scales of karma
      is weighed

      ~  issa ~

      flitting butterfly--
      thus is Buddhism
      in this world

      ~  issa  ~


      pausing for a nap
      on the temple bell
      the butterfly

      ~  buson  ~

              on the offering shelf
              does the butterfly also hear
              Buddha's promise?

              ~  issa  ~ 

      a butterfly falls
      and all of a sudden puddles
      freeze over.

      ~  onishi  ~

      a previous life's bond?
      little butterfly
      on my sleeve, asleep

      ~  issa  ~


      for a companion
      on my walking trip... perhaps
      a little butterfly  

      ~  shiki  ~

              in tree shade
              dwelling with a butterfly...
              friends in a previous life

              ~  issa  ~

      a fallen blossom
      returning to the bough, I thought --
      but no, a butterfly.

      ~  moritake  ~

           butterfly -
           wings curve into
           white poppy.

          ~  basho  ~


      window open--                              flower under harvest
      a butterfly pulls my eyes               sun - stranger
      across the field                             to bird, butterfly.

      ~  issa  ~                                        ~  basho  ~


      flecked with sand                           yellow butterfly...
      from the whirlwind...                      fluttering, fluttering on
      little butterfly                                  over the ocean

      ~  issa  ~                                         ~  shiki  ~

      hot tub steam
      wafts softly, softly...
      as does a butterfly

      ~  issa  ~

      it's all yours
      butterfly, take a rest
      on the mushroom

      ~  issa  ~

      the butterfly in a mad

      ~  issa  ~


      stuck to the dog
      curled asleep...

      ~   issa  ~

              softly folded fawn
              shivers, shaking off the butterfly...
              and sleeps again

              ~   issa  ~

      among the dewdrops
      the butterfly's mood

      ~   issa  ~

      butterfly in my hand --
      as if it were a spirit
      unearthly, insubstantial.
      ~  buson  ~

       Panhala ~ Joe Riley

      Tilokal Lake
      (the Frozen Lake)

      In this high place
      It is as simple as this
      Leave everything you know behind

      Step toward the cold surface
      Say the old prayer of rough love
      And open Both arms

      Those who come with empty hands
      Will stare into the lake astonished
      There in the cold light reflecting cold snow
      The true shape of your own face
      ~ David Whyte ~

      wake, butterfly -
      it's late, we've miles
      to go together.
