This week’s Fascinating Fiction podcast comes in poem form, but is definitely a short story, and a profound one at that! The Boy, the Butterfly, and the Broken Wing by Mrs. Menagerie is a sweet story inspired by a real life experience she shared with her son.
Have a look at the original Hub to read the poem/story. It is very touching!

Thank you Simone, your reading is beautiful.
What a sweet, profound line! – “the cyclical waxing and waning of happiness and pain that goes along with loving something or someone.”
As a person who dislikes caterpillars, but loves butterflies, and who often shies away from this style of rhyming verse, I found this poem-story (and the reading) especially and uniquely endearing and satisfying.
