This is an actual even. It all happened last summer at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

A Butterfly and a New Friend

I stopped my car just yesterday
On a whim of natures play
I walked up to a railed fence
With an content
The traffic whizzed...I never budged
My eyes were glued to the loop and dodge
The orange and black of dizzy wings
The smell of flowers...hints of spring
The breeze of February...promised warmth
This woman who would do no harm
She rested here upon my finger
I edged her closer...still she lingered
The magic of a friend in flight
The soul to spirit...what a sight
We called upon this silent vow
To trade a smile for a fuzzy bow
Just me and she...this one of magic
Her flight of fancy dodging traffic
My wish to travel where she goes
Her wings so still upon this rose
I gave her time to rest from flight
She gave me friendship...eyes so bright
How many ME's does she see or feel...
Is she with this all real
The colors vibrant, her need to dance
The miracle spoken with silent chance
We stayed glued for half an hour
A raindrop came and then a shower
I placed her under the rail fence
I left her there and off I went
This time was special for she and I
My wishes are hers when she flies
I'll always recall this wonderment
This Monarch afternoon I spent
When nature trusted me again
With a butterfly and a new friend.

I love butterflies, know they are little spirits that come to us when necessary to comfort us. Glad yours stayed with you and I had one stay with me after Tom's death but never came back yet. Always looking for it, saw white one, but not the blue spotted monarch one. Guess it was traveling through that day and left a message that Tom is o.k. I have several butterfly poems on my den posted.
