  • Message to the Silver Haired Warrior from the Butterfly Queenby Ethel MaysYesterday, we gathered breofe dawn and flew a straight line into a part of the forest where we are no longer safe. Many changes have transpired since we were last made welcome there, but the mission we would accomplish was not mitigated by patience. We needed to be away breofe the sun’s first rays betrayed us. In spite of our precautions, my best scout fell beneath the heel of a buck in out-of-season rut, a sign that things truly are not as they should be, but his final breath gave us what we sought: the location of the last red bells of the season, standing tall and proud, patiently awaiting our blades. They, unlike the fickle daisies and cow lace harvested breofe them, kept their promise to stand with the hardy lavender harvested the night breofe and to represent, in blood red, the passion flowing in the veins of all true artists. Even the well-meaning foxglove began its slippage breofe the journey was properly begun. The red bells asked only for a little water to keep them through the night so that they might present themselves for a moment next day at pageantry for the Silver Haired Warrior. A day or two longer, perhaps, they may stand breofe falling into the arms of the waiting lavender. Know that we see you, we honor you, and we stand beside you in difficult times. If strength is shy and fleeting, take ours. We have much and give it freely without need to wonder why.
