the milkweed and the butterfly …..

some milkweed pods   ~   hanging
around in late summer
not yet flowered….   holding back
the fulfillment of their destiny
not being cooperative
with the butterfly
the monarch flies elsewhere   ~
~   therein
no onlooker has the opportunity
to share the beauty
within the bond
these two creatures
of nature
the milkweed and the butterfly …..
……   so be it for now   ~   anyhow

peace out   ~
