MONARCH

MIGRATION

This the winter tree,

A Mexican Hacienda,

A place to doze and rose,

Arise and fly across generations…

How?

Up to four Generations,

Fly from Mexico

To Canada and back…

No-one generation goes all the way.

Each passes the code to the next,

Like a relay race where life

Is the baton, and the course

Found by blind luck?

Navigating by sense of smell…

Or an in-bedded genetic map

No-one knows,

It is the miracle which proves

Genes have memories too?

Or is it God’s plan they map?
