Along Lake Michigan’s shore monarchs wing southward

Four bright orange wings with black stripes and white dots

Flutter in the wind then glide in airstreams.

 

In their dream like flights

Monarch butterflies work their way south

bound for Mexico.

 

They land on

Milkweed--six black legs taste pink blossoms

a spiral tongues unfurl deep into the flower

and they sip its sweetness in.

 

Crowds of monarchs fill the sky

Doppler picks up a moving cloud

yet the air is clear.

From chilly Michigan

To sunny Mexico

 

They go—they go.


 

 

Between Sweetwater and Sand

A strong symbol of American insects. If the milkweed is destroyed, so will be the monarch. We do everything we can to keep the migration going for as long as it can.

Beautiful. Monarchs are facing extinction, so I hope they all survive.

They go—they go.

Wonderful miracles are all around us. Thank you Barbara for reminding us about one more miracle from the Lord above. Amen

I've never be where I could experience the Monarch's trek southward, but I know it has to be a beautiful sight.
