They met one sparkling summer day
A most unlikely pairing
People paused to ponder
What they might be sharing
With gentle wave of fragile wing
Adrift on a breath of air
“What do you see”, the monarch asked
“All bottled up in there?”
“Well, I fly high” the astronaut replied
“to gain a broader view
While what you see is limited
To what’s just in front of you”
And so, you might imagine
The two talked quite a lot
Of varying views of God’s handiwork
As seen by a butterfly and an astronaut.


  1. This is absolutely wonderful Beverly! I love the connection between the butterfly and the astronaut and the conversation that shows their points of view. Simply lovely writing! I love it!!

  2. I love the idea of a butterfly and a human discussing varied views on God's work.

  3. I love the different perspectives. One broad and one very focused. Like seeing both the whole picture and the individual parts.

  4. I would love to hear their points of view on the stages of life.

  5. This made me smile, broader and broader as I read Bev. The rhyme is so engaging. This is a great little poem
