a fluttering stream

September 18 - September 22

as the sun sang in a new day

a monarch appeared overhead complimenting

the richness of the blue sky

then another

and another

then five

then fifteen

all day there were waves of butterflies accompanied

by squadrons of widow skimmers flowing overhead

a few landed, pausing on their journey perhaps

to dream of those who would return one day

I find myself near tears thinking still about Sterna Hirundo. At first I was afraid that the monarch,too, had died at the shore. All this death and fear and destruction and anger and retribution in the human world. . . Thank you for sharing the monarch‘s optimism.
