Gliding Along Lightly
by Susan Savia
from golden Chrysallis
glides along lightly
a graceful Monarch journey of 10,000
miles begins with a single beat of the wings
“The butterfly is a reminder that life, though ephemeral, is beautiful.”
A waltz dedicated to the Monarch Butterfly, who travels from Latin America to the mid-Atlantic every summer simply by gliding along lightly on the breeze, stopping ever so frequently to sip sweet nectar, bringing beauty, enchantment and color to our yards.
