Butterfly and Flower

August 25, 2018

Without a thought,

the flower invites the butterfly.

Without a thought,

the butterfly visits the flower.

When the flower blooms,

the butterfly comes.

 

When the butterfly arrives,

the flower blooms.

I do not know others;

others do not know me.

Not knowing each other,

we act in accord

with the Goddess of Spring.
