I have butterflies where ever I can, I have even found a bucket at the nursery with butterflies on and I have small butterfly earnings and a beautiful butterfly T shirt I bought in Cape Town, so this poem is for me the absolute best of the best. Awesome Jan. Hugs, Jennifer.

I do love blue butterflies, and the word 'diaphonous'. Hope this garners a win with Tania. Hugs ~ John
