When the morning sun lit the top of the marigold
a monarch butterfly appeared for a quick December sun bath.
The rest of her tribe had departed for Mexico last month.
I stood warm in the kitchen as she posed for me
like an auntie waving good-by after a nice long visit.
I wish her a safe journey and hope she catches up with her
community of sisters and brothers soon.
I wrote last month about the loss of butterflies I was certainly glad to see there was one still around after the frost we have had. It gives me hope.
