Brimstone Butterfly Treacle

Brimstone - xanthic

“Things are both more trivial than they ever were and more important than they ever were, and the difference between the trivial and the important doesn’t seem to matter. But the now-ness of everything is absolutely wondrous…”

– Dennis Potter

X is for Xanthic.

.

for yellow-ish!

Brimstone - xanthic 2

.

I’m not just a butterfly,

I’m a Brimstone!

And luckily it was so busy,

sipping the treacle of bluebells,

that it did not mind this human,

and its rather protruding eye,

getting up close and personal,

all up in its wings,

with it.

“…and if people could see that, you know. There’s no way of telling you; you have to experience it, but the glory of it, if you like, the comfort of it, the reassurance.”
