Linking today to Carpe Diem's prompt:
the butterfly returns
to the pines of Shiogoshi Shrine
-- Chiyo-Ni (1703-1775)
ever green the pines...
thrust of a hummingbird's beak
every now and then
... of partings and popes...
and so... its much love to you February...
quite a phenomenal month... revisit February 1st 2013
