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
