Papilio Machaon

delicate wings
so paper thin
soft cream colours
tipped with pale
blue and orange
held in the breeze

large eyes watching
antennas testing
clinging to a stem
by skeleton legs
with curled tongue
tasting the pollen
from this tiny
white blossom

living art
sweet scented
so petite 
so beautiful
light on the air
a wondrous sight

inspired by a wonderful photo by buleria  on DeviantArt
