Chuang Tzu's Buddha Butterfly -7th Version - Poem by warner treuter

All the beauty I have known,
For me extant in palimpsest,
(Real, would weigh a trillion ton) ,
God carries on his breath.

The palatial dreams of my youth
Never have and never shall
Be built by me, no, my growth
Is as the sounding of a bell.

Chuang Tzu's butterfly, I roam
From civilized to primeval,
Earth is but a temporary home
For chrysalising beauty larval.

    I enjoyed very much. Your only problem is you write too well and it keeps me up
    too late at night reading all of it.
