Ephemeral Objects

With Ephemeral Objects, I honor the structures of the natural world, form at its root. By presenting these natural objects out of context it is my intent to bring attention to the creations of these “lowly” architects and admiration for their unique construction and beauty.

I call butterflies
to me to die.
The tattered ones
come day in day
out, tired and frayed.
I respect the remains of
beauty. I will hold you dear
while your last flutter
breaks the afternoon calm.
I cherish your dust
of hue and petal,
embossed memory
made of flight.

Have you ever made something from a natural object you found? Do you have any natural ‘sculptures’ displayed in your home? I would enjoy hearing about your experiences with found objects.
