Sitting with butterfly/Assise avec papillon

This morning, a butterfly in the garden was not like anything.
I sat. The butterfly fluttered, then it didn’t, it folded and unfolded its hazel-brown wings.
I sat. The butterfly came and went nowhere, although it left my sight and entered it again.
I sat. Only a thought made the butterfly like my mind, a thought.
I sat, not like anything.
