This week my two favorite species of butterflies have joined the ever-present iconic Monarch species to bring stunning decorations to the meadow landscapes.

Yes, the White Admiral                                               and the Giant Swallowtail 


Butterflies have always fascinated me.  This poem perhaps will send you into the dreamy place that restores my soul.

One Day Butterfly

    Aren’t we all one-day butterflies,

not aware of time.

Searching for partners or honey

until Death kisses us.

Then in his arms, tenderly rocked,

waiting for a new chance

to fly away again

and join the dance

of the one-day butterfly
