I know I told Pillar that I would come straight home, she even asked me, “Mommy you won’t be late will you?”, “No Pillar I won’t be late”, but it is a gorgeous day and I have been anxious to try this organic nectar.  The fragrance alone is intoxicating.  I shall take a sip, mmm mmm, this is as delicious as I expected.  A fresh, robust sweetness of honey and a slight hint of lemon, tremendous!

It’s a shame Pillar is unable to delight in this nectar, ah but her day will come.  I can already see the changes in her, all wrapped up in her little cocoon world!! 

Will you look at that, I have drunk it dry.  It is getting late, I have lingered long enough, after all Pillar is waiting, if I don’t get back I may not even recognize her.



Thanks PJ!

  1. This is a wonderful story Deb! Pillar is in a cacoon being changed into a butterfly! Sadly though, her mommy may not have been home in time to see her beautiful transformation. (You did everything right linking up!! Thank you for participating!)

  3. This is a simply astonishing take of the prompt. The call of nectar and the call of motherhood as her child is on the brink of transformation. Changes are coming and welcomed. Such love to her daughter, her self, and nature. Excellent job with this!

  4. Sweet story! Mom comes home but the Pillar has already flown away. Human mothers do not like to miss a single stage of their child’s development, a baby’s first turning over or roll over, in fact all the firsts.
