Moving ever so gently in the breeze

Inky pods pointing at jaunty angles

Launching snowy puffs toward the sky

Kin to generations of offspring

Wind picks up, lifting them higher and higher

Effortless silk parachutes setting sail to the

Exclamations of children nearby

Daring the golden Monarchs to salute their shared home and continue to soar.


Our Farther Along group has a particular affinity for butterflies, so the nurturing of milkweed, a plant of particular necessity for Monarchs, is noticed. For more about Monarchs and milkweed, look here.
