Inscribed in Alice Munro’s book,
The Butterfly’s Daughter is a quote
by Maya Angelou.
“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly,
but rarely admit the changes
it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
the day was seen with mundane eyes and
so i wanted the rest of it
for something beautiful
something for sharing;
for the beginning of a week
of(f)riday’s full moon
i feel centered at the cusp of a
twelve year circle.
