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.
