    What a wonderful picture you paint, Mike. How the most ordinary facet of nature can surpass the talent os men and how thought can be turned to wonder buy something so simple as a butterfly. Thank you for posting, I look forward to reading more of your work on the site. I am putting this on the editors daily pick list.

    so lovely. the imagery is striking in its simplicity and contrast. your ending is quite thought provoking and stirred me in my seat a bit. well penned query and a beautiful capture of meaning and message.
