As we wandered outdoors
in the warm Autumn air
two monarch butterflies delighted me
by spiral dancing above our heads,
joyful moments were indeed immense.
I was walking through
red and pink Valerian blooms,
and carrying Bobby, the woolly-fella,
when Poppy energy surrounded the space
as these butterflies then circled us
and I was in awe of how close they came
and stayed to play for a long time.
It was just what I needed to lift and inspire
as a few minutes before I was weeping some tears
and thinking of her,
as I saw the Viburnum near her grave
was looking healthy with new buds
soon to be blossoming after the rain.
