Thoughts of a butterfly

Hope may be a thing with feathers, but inspiration is a thing with wings!

I saw this Northern Pearly-eye on the rail while I was watering the deck plants. It wanted me to feast my eyes on all its lovely (albeit slightly damaged) parts.

And I happily obliged, snapping photos of it like it was a celebrity and I was the paparazzi. This inspired the following ditty:

Not shy, am I?
Don’t pass me by.
I’m not one to hide…
admire my good side.
You’ll be mesmerized
by my pearly “eyes.”
