"Butterfly By"

While out on my morning hike today, I stopped to appreciate some of the smaller creatures of the forest and the following lines popped into my head. Here it is, for your amusement:

Butterfly By

"I paused to rest along the trail today and lowered my pack when I noticed a butterfly by.

Suddenly there was another, and another, and then there were three butterflies by.

I reached for my camera but when I looked up they were gone, there were no butterflies by.

There I was, holding my camera, waiting for a butterfly to fly by.

Within minutes a butterfly flew by, followed by another, and another, and another, and another…

Before long there were one, two, three, four, five butterflies by."
