Red Spotted Purple on July 18
Flew here briefly to be seen
Pollinating a butterfly plant
E'en tho' they've been scant.
It brought us a gentle caress
On my late mother's birthday
The gift of life after death
Is a butterfly with a bouquet!

    Thank you so much for your kind words...My husband told me tonight that he had never seen this species of butterfly pollinate that flower before I shot this on the 18th....I wrote my poetry tonight with deep emotion remembering how much my mother loved butterflies!
