A spring day in fall …
I was surprised to first see a peacock butterfly
before I heard that strange flickering sound close to my ear.
A last warm up before hibernating
I remember my surprise when 40 years ago
they covered the entire attic window
one of those early days in spring
This one looked very fragile
lost some of its colours
but under the sun
too fast to snap
Before that dragonfly caught my ear,
the butterfly landed on our neighbour’s wall
clicked the canon, where it’d found some peace.
