An Alternate Viewpoint

Monarchs

A bitter poison builds
in their bodies and paper wings
as they feed on milkweed, swan plant
and apple of sodom.

Jack ’o lantern color
and flavor of death, yet none calls
them harbingers.  They are
too lovely, too gentle. They come
formed as angels of light.

    Love the picture with the poem, it adds something. You have a delicate way of rearranging the right words into the right flow. Happy to know you.
