Holding On To Summer

yes, this is a re-post from friday
only because i was informed this morning about 
mosaic mondays and wanted to join in!

our butterfly bush
is reaching the end of its season
but still attracts daily customers
to feast upon its last flowers

this black swallowtail
was an delight to watch

he wouldn't stop fluttering
and depending on how the light was hitting
the orange and blue on his under wings
 got electrified

the butterfly
counts not months
but moments,
and has time enough.

Rabindranath Tagore

what are your last signs of summer?

join me at mary's little red house for mosaic monday
