Can you Tell Me?

Posted on February 11th, 2013 in Stories



Painting done for Lana Martinez by Miranda Koerner

Can you tell me,

Oh can you tell me,

Where do butterflies go when it rains?

Do they duck under flowers?

Do they use leaves as umbrellas

Or simply float between drops without a care?

Can you tell me,

Can you tell me,

Where do butterflies go when it rains?

Do they wrap themselves in snug cocoons?


Or do they brave the world and venture into the wet day,

With only tiny rain boots and an air of frivolity?

Oh, if you can,

If you can,

Tell me where butterflies go when it rains,

So I can go there too.

 Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A peek in to the Blond Duck’s life as a reporter tomorrow!

    Nice painting–thanks. Maybe butterflies have a special
    place of protection to weather the storms. I wish such
    a place for you and all. Maybe it is right in front of each
    of us.
