Hibiscus/Moth Fusion: FOTD July 5, 2020


This huge moth seems a part of the hibiscus it rests against. That’s my hand under it, turning it to the camera.

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      I know…I found the moth on the driveway. When I picked it up to move it to a plant, it fluttered a bit so I knew it was alive. I put it on a huge cactus and it fell into the street so I brought it inside my property and looked for a safer place. When I passed the hibiscus, I thought it would be a good spot as it had grass underneath, but as I got ready to place it, I noticed how similar they were and once it was placed, it seemed to just melt into the flower. I haven’t checked to see if it is still there. Usually when moths are at that stage, I think they are dying, but I still always try to put them in a safe place where the dogs or cats or car tires can’t get at them.

      To be fair, the moth didn’t fly there. I placed it there. I was trying to find a safe place for it as it was on the pavement in front of my garage where it would have been backed over.
