We agreed to rendezvous
on these pink flowers,
but I have no GPS
and to my dismay
pink is everywhere.
I’ve been lost for hours
searching through flowers
while you patiently
waited here for me.
So sorry I’m late!
Please accept my
butterfly apology. ~ms

Another butterfly apology in order.
I put my response in the wrong reply box, so you didn’t get it.
Truly, I am directionally challenged.
Thanks for the comment. Always love to hear from you…. 🙂
Beautiful photo Mary.
I love this!
I loved it!
Thanks again, Daeja’s view!
Thank you, Dr. IQ.
You fluttered, then sputtered,
life just a little cluttered,
then glided and bided,
you slightly divided,
to turn to your flower
with all of your power.
That’s when love collided.
It could have be love colliding amidst the flowers, but it also could have been just another boring Monday morning meeting–that they were both required to attend.
We will never know…..
Love this! Hope you have a happy Easter!
Yes. That’s because you know the butterfly.
I will stay far, far away from I-95 today.
You should have seen it yesterday. TRAFFIC.
It was like a parking lot of cars as far as I could see, filled with Easter weekend travelers.
While I was writing the poem about the butterfly, I thought about your dad.
Such a kind man, he was.
He asked me—“Do you always get lost?”
“Most of the time, it seems that I do. I think I was born without a sense of direction,” I replied.
He thought for a moment or so, and then he suggested that I start shooting off flares and rockets so people can find me.
I told him that would not be a good idea around here.
He said, “Well, don’t worry. I’m going to keep working on this until I find an answer for you.”
Bless his soul!
Thanks so much for liking my post Animal Drawings, which has brought me here to your wonderful blog.
Thank you, Nancy!
Your animal drawings are very detailed. I think they are great!
Wish I could do the same, but alas….when I try to draw animals, It just doesn’t look right. And that’s an understatement. 😉
this is super cute! loved it 🙂
Thanks you, Sharmishtha.
Poor tired butterfly, easily confused!
If there is a turn in the road and I have 2 choices ( left or right), odds are–I will pick the one that takes me even farther from my desired destination. Now I have a GPS that tells me which way to turn, so things are much better. 🙂
Lovely! What a cool blog here of beautiful words & pictures. Thanks for the Like on my post… now, to wander around here a bit more… xLaura
Make sure you take a GPS, so you don’t get lost in the rambling. 😉
Unless I’m mistaken, a beautiful Variegated Fritillary on an even more lovely flower!
I did not know the name of these two ‘brown’ butterflies, so thanks for letting me know. I just looked up Variegated Fritillary and the photo examples are similar.
We have lots of Monarch butterflies around here and I know exactly what they look like. But the rest of the butterflies flitting around here, including the fritillary, are a mystery to me. 🙂
So beautiful !!!
Thank you….I am sure there are some fairies hiding in this scene somewhere! Perhaps if I would have looked beneath the cool green leaves, I would have seen them playing.
(I did look at your blog— I love your beautiful fairy artwork)!
I’m sure there were some fairies hiding there too it’s a very enchanting picture ! Thank you so much Mary !! I’m happy you like my work !!
