Monarch butterfly - most revered of all butterflies

Dr Abe V Rotor

Monarch butterfly at rest; handcrafted giant monarch butterflies amuse tourists at Dr Jose Rizal's ancestral home in Calamba, Laguna.  

Monarch butterfly - most revered of butterflies
by color and design, in ritual and fashion;
they swarm in winter time from north to south
in their annual migration,
guided by the genes of their ancestors
to leave their home and return
in summer across thousands of miles in the sky,
that instinct and bonding govern. ~
