Great Purple Hairstreak — Mission Accomplished   1 comment

Great Purple Hairstreak On Patio Wall (1 of 1)-4 blog

After a morning run
on a chilly desert morning,
I walked out on the patio
with a cup of black coffee.

Noticing a
Great Purple Hairstreak

on the patio floor, motionless
from the forties temperature,

And wanting to help her
on her morning flight,
I placed her in the sun
on the patio wall

Where she fail on her side
a couple of times
before finally steadying
herself
in the sunlight.

Taking longer
than expected
for her to take flight,
I went inside for more coffee.

Returning to the patio, 
the countdown was completed,
I had missed her liftoff —
Mission accomplished.
