After a beam of light is sent from the far future, Lynn is given a mysterious task. A distant relative requests she write poetry about the natural world and the repercussions that modern day society has brought upon itself.
Lynn finds that our future isn’t totally lost and that all people have a role in making Earth a sustainable place for generations to come. Technology can be used to fix the damages that have harmed the planet, leaving a strange, unnatural world wrought with destruction. However, due to strange, new sights that Lynn is forced to perceive, the looming thought of everything being just a dream is ever present in the back of her mind.
Bronze-Winged Butterfly is a postmodern narrative that utilizes natural, romantic, and post-pastoral imagery with future speculation to tell its story. Lynn’s tale deftly blends poetry, realism, and science fiction to create a memorable reflection on the dire challenges facing the modern natural world.
