..Thus saith the Lord: Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death...Jeremiah 21: 8

Excuse me for going back into my archives from October 2011 but I needed to post something more colorful besides snow. LOL I think I am getting anxious for winter to be over:)

The Monarch butterfly
Didn't want the Zinnia to die
Thus it tried to pollinate
E'en tho' it was too late
For it to resuscitate..
Alas, It is the way of death...
Only God has the higher power
To revive the aging flower;
And to give all life to breath....

Poetry by me, AJP

    Thank you for the comments..Donald. that certainly would be a flight for sore eyes to see
    a butterfly with frozen wings this time of the year...
