Baby Monarch

It looks big in the picture, but it is quite small.

A Monarch is what you are.

Your travels take you oh so far.

You leave your children in my care

On the milkweed with none to spare.

I watch them grow and think of you.

Someday they will be beautiful too.

Now they are cute and sweet.

Maybe you and they will meet.

You will know you did your part;

To keep the Monarchs in my heart.

To a Narcissist

Why did you take my heart?

It wasn’t what you wanted.

You said you loved me.

And I believed you.

Now you say you never loved me.

And I believe you.

I didn’t want to make waves.

You used that to drown me.

Giving me enough air to keep me alive.

Taking it away to keep me under control.

It doesn’t matter either way.

You’ve made yourself clear.

I no longer let you feed on my soul.

You have others for that now.

I gave you my past.

The future is mine.

Hi there!

I love dragonflies.  Squash bugs – not so much.  I had beautiful, healthy squash plants; now I don’t.  My cucumber plants have all succumbed to the juggernaut of hungry squash bugs.  Now they are lurking on my tomatoes.  I would like to say there is Sevin dust in their future, but I won’t use pesticides.  They don’t know how lucky they are.  :^(

I wish dragonflies ate squash bugs.
