A Visit From White Moth

“Moth medicine’s meaning is resurrection and transformation. A moth represents tremendous change, but it also seeks the light. Thus, moth spiritual meaning is to trust the changes that are happening and that freedom and liberation are around the corner.”

Soft white against bright yellow, the moth stood out on the wall of our dining room.  It was the kind of thing I would hang on the wall if it weren’t a living being.

It didn’t move as I cupped my hand around it, careful not to put pressure on the dusty wings.

When I brought it outside and opened my hand so it could fly away, it still didn’t move. But it did slowly attach itself to the tip of my finger when I tried to ease it onto the white petal of the Iris growing by the back porch.

Since the moth didn’t seem to have any interest in leaving my finger, I sat down and got a closer look. I wanted to pet the white “fur” on its shoulders and head. The moth looked like she was more prepared for winter than this hot summer day.

I couldn’t see the “fur” on its legs or the ribbing in the antennas until I looked at the picture I had taken.

She stayed on my finger for about ten minutes, then seemed suddenly restless, moving a bit more in the sun, maybe warming up.

Then she flew away.
