Question Marks and Commas ~ Pausing to Ponder
A Question Mark butterfly, Polygonia interrogations takes a brief break from fluttering
on suspended leafy greens giving this Lepidoptera devotee pause to ponder
. . . is it indeed a Question Mark or an Eastern Comma?
Being a writer who has a difficult time with commas
. . . and after studying images over at the Massachusetts Butterfly Club's fabulous website
. . . I have decided to go with the Question Mark butterfly.
There may be questions floating about as to why this author has not been posting regularly of late.
I am pausing more between publishing but hope to be back on a routine schedule soon.
A life cycle takes time . . . and I am still busy working on the Monarch Metamorphosis to share.
Flower Hill Farm gardens and fields are aflutter with painted wings
. . . Brushfoots, Fritillaries, Wood Nymphs, Milkweed butterflies and more.
Migration is in the air along with the full blue moon.
Special best wishes to our hard working teachers heading back to school
. . . with much gratitude for your service in helping to educate our youth
. . . the future leaders of our world.
May they show more promise than what we sadly see in most of our leaders today.
While we are on the subject of questions
. . . let's all remember to question authority and actively engage in the process of government
. . . and I am not writing about just voting.
We are teetering on a precipice.
Happy September All.
