FLUTTERBYS

Post by Byron » Sat Sep 01, 2012 12:21 pm

FLUTTERBYS



Through a smudged kitchen window
Uncleaned, unwashed but rained upon
Our Sun slices

Scaring, scattering loose clouds of greys
It finds the darkest undergrowth
Displaying life

Two pirouetting butterflies
Red and black and pink
Courtship mating

In and out of shadows
Bursting through the rays
Wow, Blindingly

What smudge what window
What rain-washed glass
Only life


Gone

It's a lovely image Byran

this sense of life going on, of beauty sill existing despite what feels like a heavy grief.

I'm so glad to see you back on here [not her] contributing, Byron!
Your [not You're] perspectives always have such unique twists and I know how they come from such a deep feeling place inside you.
I love how all the conditions of the windows that would normally obscure your view just disappear in the presence of the brilliance of life brought you by the butterflies.

Thanks Elizabeth.
Also, thanks for jolting me out of mis-spelling butterflies. :oops:
Now edited.

Well, ironic that you say that, Byron.
Whereas, I'm not usually making misspells, I managed to do two of them in one posting in my rushing.
So, going back to correct them!

And... what!?!
Butterflies DO Flutter By, don't they?
I thought your spelling was intentional.

'Flutterbys' was intentional. Butterflys was wrong. Butterflies is correct.

Where did you actually say Butterflys, though? I couldn't find it and looked before I responded. Did I overlook it??

Two pirouetting butterflys..........was what appeared in the original piece.
