sorry meant to actually comment on the poem ...

mountain path
as far as I can follow
the butterfly

i was drawn back to it in rereading today ...

i love the pivot (you may remember its one of my favourite techniques) ... i particularly like inversions which happens between both lines 1 and 3 utilising the pivot ...

and the moment itself - is fabulous ... metaphors do spring to mind but thats another thought entirely ...
