The comeback kid
Her eyes open to greet the morning dew drops on her wings shimmering blue sparkles as sunlight gently passes over Wings stretched as she catches the wind soaring with beauty and grace as she takes to the sky high above the world free and safe Looking for the light that guides her the wind gently whispers and catches her eye as fluttering wings dance in the breeze Once thought to be extinct her kind had vanished only to be rediscovered hidden away in small pockets hanging on just barely As springtime brings life anew she finds a mate and lays her eggs with hope for the next generation The Atala butterfly has a story to tell of life once lost then found again their delicate balance in nature warns of peril we should listen Lest we forget how close they once came to being gone from this earth forever
