The Smile of Nature

The other day Marissa was walking down the street in Riverhead when she noticed a butterfly perched on top of an orange flower growing alongside the sidewalk.  It looked as if the butterfly - an American painted lady I believe - was waiting patiently for Marissa to come along, ready for her camera close up.

 I love this photo.  It makes me think of The Smile, the poem by William Blake.  So this morning it inspired me to return the favor with my own short reply called Nature's Smile, a short poem for Marissa and William Blake:

There's a smile of giving
And there's a smile of getting
And there's the Smile of Nature
In which both come together
