Monarch at Midnight

Exhausted from a hectic day
I walked outside in disarray.
And there upon a blooming rose
a golden Monarch did repose.

I felt my energy return
and gone was worry and concern.
I thought about our chrysalis
that opened with a single kiss.

    Hey James- looks like we're starting (yet another one here at P.S.) a mutual admiration society. This one is 'ticklish' :-) Loved the Chrysalis. Your good inner eye led to some good poetry. I'm at my inlaws, my toddler is asleep with hubby upstairs on a mattress on the floor and I'm working on my second cup of coffee and found minutes of bliss to read and unwind (rare for me before 10 pm) again thanks for your kindness and keep writing! Just superb stuff coming from you. Cheers Cyndi
