I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly,
or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.

--Chang Tzu


You’re high on driving the red Ferrari
when my trip is the Monarch Butterfly,
so we weekended their fall safari,
and bonded, on Point Pelee,* years gone by.

I marvel you still love me; how you try;
polarity's the pull without the oath.
How does the Viceroy not identify?
The very mimicry benefits both.

Everything au contraire, la guerre to Goethe,
yet every quarrel ends corralled in care,
sustains us yet supports our separate growth,
symbiosis patterned pied-a-terre.

Imprint more potent than the need to cling,
one loves stronger, the grace a precious thing.



© Helga Ross 2006

*Point Pelee National Park Leamington, Ontario:
Most southerly point in Canada, on Lake Erie’s North shore.
A major migratory stopover point in North America.

I guess I'll just have to follow the butterfly in my Triumph TR6 (Ferraris are far too kitsch for me) They both give me a buzz.

Not only your man, but let's hope that every man gets the message here. I enjoyed the whole of it, especially, the line, "Imprint more potent than the need to cling," This is a word imprint never to be erased from my mind. And, I thank you so very much for making this a special day in my poetic journey.
