Monarch Seeks Mums

Yesterday I planted the purple mums
Which had sat forlorn on the porch for days.
A monarch butterfly is scouring porch searching for mums today.

Monarch is fifteen yards away from the goal plant.
Will he settle for a light on the marigolds or the roses?
I watch him take off, in an optimistic way.

He flits up and down from bush to flower,
Settling on the purple mums. 
This determined butterfly amuses me.

I am thrilled with butterflies and flowers. I had to re-check one of my contest poems that said do not include the word 'bee' or 'flower'.

I love them so much! And the flowers that brings them alive.
