Happy Poetry Friday! I’m posting early as I’m on my way to Door County, WI. I think the monarchs may become more scarce soon as the milkweed flowers are almost finished blooming. A few more pics from my backyard, where I did see three monarchs today. Here’s a cherita poem in their honor, and one extra poem on butterflies. Hope to catch up with responses and other Poetry Friday posts on my return!
hey monarch butterfly
whenever I see you a smile rolls by
and my whole spirit soars …
to a place way up high
where wonder catches dreams
in the twinkling of an eye.

Here’s another butterfly poem
Yesterday a butterfly
Came floating gently through the sky.
He soared up through the atmosphere
Then drifted close enough to hear.
I said, “I’d love to fly with you
And sail around the way you do.
It looks like it would be such fun
To fly up toward the summer sun.
But I have not your graceful charm.
I haven’t wings, just these two arms.
I’ve been designed to walk around.
My human feet must touch the ground.
Then magically he spoke to me
