For Duncan

photo by yorksnbeans
when my father passed away
 i learned about the presence of butterflies

 not only after my father's passing
but after my best friend's father's passing
and mr. ynb's mother's passing

a butterfly appeared at the most unexpected times
very unexpected times

letting us know
 they are okay
and still among us

this photo was taken in 2003
soon after my father's passing
this particular day there were several
 flitting around our backyard

everyone has there own butterfly
mine is the tiger swallowtail
mr. ynb's is the red admiral

be on the lookout
