lands beside my bench,
Why do I
feel a sudden need

Notes: Am I the only one who thinks some butterflies look dusty? And like Really BIG bugs! Twenty years ago, a butterfly landed on my shoulder, and I was intimidated by its size and long legs so close to my nose. But I restrained myself and didn’t dust it.
The photograph was taken in the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory. Butterflies in nature have become rare. One landed on my son’s hat, and after it finally flew away, he waited for us in the cafe. It reminded me that my first time wasn’t perfectly positive either. Humor often lurks in our less than sterling moments.
Happy Poetry Friday and thanks to the illustrious poet Amy Ludwig VanDerwater at the Poem Farm for hosting! Sadly, I had to increase my blog security, and, as a result, often can’t link up. But I’m still quietly joining in from afar and providing links.
