My Elusive Butterfly #4
Caption: My Elusive Butterfly-#4
The story: I was walking down our long driveway to our mailbox and not taking in any of summer's beauty. I feel sad and lonely thinking about my son, Herbert, who we had lost nine years ago. I caught a flash of color our of the corner of my eye. It was a beautiful butterfly. I began chasing it as I saw it landed on one of the flower's in our yard. And then as I tried to capture a picture, it flew upward higher and higher-then out of sight.
