My butterfly

Thank you so much for the #FF Twitter love! I’m overwhelmed by how small this world can become once we stop to say hello. Earlier this week I was lucky enough to see a few wildly beautiful butterflies and I just happened to have my camera with me, so I snapped some photos. It reminded me of a Robert Frost poem that I think might inspire you.

Hope your weekend is filled with creativity, inspiration and tons of writing and reading! As always, if you’re reading a great book feel free to share it with me. I’m always on the lookout for wonderful new summer reads. Happy Friday!!!

Blue-Butterfly Day- Robert Frost

It is blue-butterfly day here in spring,

And with these sky-flakes down in flurry on flurry

There is more unmixed color on the wing

Than flowers will show for days unless they hurry.

But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:

And now from having ridden out desire

They lie closed over in the wind and cling

Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.
