This poetry card is a Milkweed Rising exclusive and is printed from an original work of digital art. A photo of a monarch butterfly dipping nectar from a lavender butterfly bush flower was the basis of this work, which was my very first Nature Mandala. The butterfly shown was the one and only monarch I spotted in 2013 and I was able to snap just 3 photos before he hurried off. The poetic tribute to the monarch, Mysterious Sojourner, on the front of the card evokes the mystery of the migration and the hope that the butterflies will return each year. The original color photo and the story of the piece are printed on the back of the card.
This blank card is approximately 5″ wide and 7″ tall (portrait orientation) and is printed on premium 100 lb. white matte paper. A white envelope is included.
