for my Purple Creature

Please, please, don’t think that
butterflies are silly with
a short memory

Please, please, don’t think that
they sit on this withered bush
without a purpose

No… They remember
its beauty. They remember
all colors and forms

How it bloomed before
a thunder-bolt that summer
Yes, they remember

They sit the same day
every year… it’s a present
The birthday present
The present from butterflies
for their depressed withered friend

  1. Years ago, I saw a butterfly land on a floating ice cream stick in a creek so it could go surfing. The following year I had flowers prepared with deeply placed sweet nectar. As I watched it insert its long proboscis into a flower, I asked it if it remembered. In the whisper of a wing flap it said that its Grandmother told it a story about surfing to find the most delicious flower ever next to a girl who giggled like a babbling brook.

    • Awwww… thank you, Aquileana!
      OMG… Do you mean that they’re unwanted witnesses for people?
      That’s why they live very little?! 😯
      Oh, dear me… I never thought of this… poor butterflies! 😥
