And then it all comes
Together, the path, vision
Flight, freedom, take place.
Art Prescription: From the mosaic I did for yesterday’s post I then negative painted and butterflies took flight out of chaos. What fun to start with a random design and find magic on the page!!

In the cool spring mud
A Mourning Cloak Butterfly
Feeds on minerals.
Art Prescription: For those of you who follow my blog you will remember the gem I found while walking at Mason Farm. It’s a Mourning Cloak Butterfly. They use their probiscus to feed on the minerals found in mud. This is why you often see a bunch of butterflies on a puddle.
Index card with colored pencil and graphite:
A gem on the path
While a woodpecker keeps time
Fledgelings flap for food.
Art Prescription: A weekend walk at our favorite place Mason Farm. The greenery is lush and birds have fledged their nests. Parents are busy feeding jittery young, so devoted. Loud as a drum, a woodpecker beats at a hollow tree. Butterflies flit and flitter among wildflowers.
Hummingbirds fuel up
For their long fall migration
Lots of fall flowers.
Art Prescription: I’m still seeing hummingbirds coming to fall blooms. They won’t be around for long as they prepare for migration.
Fall wildflowers bloom
Dot the meadows and woods for
Butterflies to feed.
Art Prescription: Hiked Mason Farm this past weekend. Beautiful wildflowers and lots of butterflies. Feeds my muse.

Vines grew and wound up
Anything they could find to
Help them meet the sun.

The leaves on a stem
Branching of a winter tree
An uncurling fern.
Art Prescription: And the butterfly knows where to go…
Watercolor and pen and ink on watercolor paper.
Outside my window
Hummingbirds play, drink nectar
From lush, sweet, flowers.
Art Prescription: Where did July go?
To taxi pollen from one
Flower to the next.
Art Prescription: The majority of all flowering plants rely on pollinators, a group of animals that includes over 200,000 species, including bees, birds, and buttrerflies.

Worn on a date to test love
Art Prescription: Folklore says if a Bachelors Button is pinned on and stays fresh it is true love.
