30 Words: Flight




Humble clay births homely entities of seed and larvae.
From bunched cthonian caterpillar bursts stunning color and silently beating wings.
Beauteous life is fleeting, the lightning wilt of floral ephemera.
 
 
This week's installment of 30 Words Thursday (from the Treasures Found Blog) was taken with my iPhone less than 4 inches away from this Monarch butterfly at the sculpture gardens outside the Walker Art Museum.  With friends Michael and Amy Babinec in town to visit over the summer, we explored new ground in our own back yard.

Spring will come again, right Eric? I love the vibrant orange of the flower and the butterfly. It makes me feel alive just looking at it. Even the wilted bloom speaks to the transience of life. Thank you for joining in the 30 Words Challenge! Enjoy the day. Erin
