Both bee and butterfly
Flew to see the blue sky
When upon Asters hill
Downward or high......
Life had duties to fulfill
Their dreams and hopes
What e'er direction given
E'en if crossing o'er slopes.....
To reach flowers of heaven!

I loved to see the blue sky yesterday. Today we have rain but tomorrow sun is predicted
with pleasant temps of 80 degrees which I know the bees and butterflies will enjoy also.

    What a series! I don't remember anything like it in the last ten years. And the poetry! Have you developed that talent over the decades? Or has it recently come to you?

    Thanks for your comments,,,,As far as poetry Richard I have dabbled with some poetry in my younger years! The art of photography inspires me now to write poetry (if I see a connection between something that I have captured in nature to fit the poem..) However it has to come from my own personal experience and heart before I can find words to fit that make sense.
