Mother Nature



"Can your pebble reach that lotus leaf?" queried the six-year-old Robin as he pointed yonder. 


"Oh, yes! Why not?" I said with confidence as I squinted one eye and aimed for that particular leaf that had that flower blooming next to it. 


Kerplop


"Oh! missed it!"I said with a crooked nose dreading that my nephew might be upset. 


 But instead, I heard a "Wow!" 


I frowned then followed his vision. 


There was a cluster of butterflies in the sky very close to the plop. The kaleidoscope was beautiful, as if maple leaves were flying in the sky. 


Mother Nature!!

I love the imagery of butterflies rising up like maple leaves to the sky.
