The Rescue

My Vision of Peace
Yesterday as I first awoke, I heard my cell phone buzz which meant I had a new email. As I rubbed the night before off of my eyes, so I could see, I grabbed my phone and checked my mail. To my surprise I had an invite from the Whole 9.

I was more than excited to receive the invitation and immediately scrolled through my arsenal of images to see what my inventory retained. I found a few images that I thought matched this year's theme of "Peace, Love and Understanding", but the images I was weighing didn't really convey the "understanding" part of the subject. I scrolled some more. I agreed upon a photo I had taken at my parents house this Spring where a butterfly had landed on my Mom's ring finger, looking like a new jewel. To me it upheld all three of the necessary components of the topic. However, the more I studied it the more I wanted to submit something fresh and new. So, I said to myself..."Wouldn't it be nice if I had the perfect encounter today and was able to capture the ideal moment for this competition?"

I quickly got out of bed with a hope in my heart, let the tail-wagger's tear-out to their territory and that is when I spotted the butterfly, prostrate in the pool, only minutes after voicing my wish. The rescue ensued, the rest has been written and the image I captured is below. The image artfully showcases the butterfly drying his wings in the sun, grasping on my finger, me "loving" him, him finding "peace" in my touch and the both of us "understanding" that the worst was over. Dare to dream and be ready to be handed your reward!
