Caterpillar in a Hurry

While munching his vegetables,

While munching his vegetables,

is a caterpillar in a hurry

to be a butterfly?

Is he in a rush to drink

nectar from flowers

and give grown-up life a try?

Maybe he just wants to open

his brand new wings…and fly!

Monarch Butterflies on Milkweed

Butterflies & Flowers

What’s more beautiful,

butterflies or the flowers

that give them nectar?

  1. Hi Cheryl, doubt you can copyright reprints … you often need permission to reprint 🙂

    clue #2: We know it’s your blog so more interesting to label each post differently, to give us a clue of the content 🙂

    1. Kate, thank you for telling me about the blog titles. I fixed them as you suggested. Now they are working as they are supposed to. I am not very “techy” and the learning curve is pretty steep. Your suggestions have been very much appreciated!

  2. ‘May be he just wants to open his brand new wings’
    Inspiring words with lovely images.
    I love both the butterfly and flowers. Both are distinct and have their own charm. 🙂
