a welcome visitor...



In my herb garden for some clippings this evening,  
I spotted this beautiful caterpillar.

How soft a Caterpillar steps
I found one on my Hand
From such a velvet world it comes
Such plushes at command
Its soundless travels just arrest 
My slow terrestrial eye
Intent upon its own career
What use has it for me

~ Emily Dickinson
