Whistler And The Butterfly

It was a small exhibition

but it stayed in my memory.

I had never encountered Whistler

but the butterfly signature did it for me.

“The Company of the Butterfly”,

what a wonderful concept!

It really spoke to me,

I even wrote a poem

about the company of butterflies.

The title trips off my tongue so easily.

And now I am put in mind of it again

as I look at this image

and see her


in the company of butterflies

ready to whistle up the wind
