  About the Author

Sharon Kortas has contributed several poems to this site, as part of our Trans-Pacific connection.  She started writing poems after her daughter, Michelle, was born with Special Needs. The poems have been coming to her "out of the blue" ever since.
This poem, Wings of Flight was written for the family of her daughter's nanny, in February 7, 1996 after hearing of an incident at a funeral. During the funeral service, a monarch butterfly flew all around the grave then into the gravesite hole and out again as the family members were all standing over the casket. Whether the spirit of the deceased family member or not, the image helped to provide the family with solace.
