I still catch my breath every time I see a newly emerged monarch butterfly.
A moment of wonder, full of intricate, lacy beauty.

A majestic creature drinking nectar from the cream grevillea!
Then quickly gone in what seemed one graceful glide through the air.

The moment needs recording.
I’ll never do it justice.
But perhaps my drawing will be enough representation,
of that brief encounter,
