Words and Notion

Observe, Don't just see

Butterflies are not lost


Lovely! How happy I am to have you

As my guest in my balcony garden

Climbing on my little Orange tree

Sucking honey, dancing all around.

In between heard some whispers

Some secrets sharing with my flowers

May I know your hush-hush hums?

Are you leaving, without answering?

Flying away making me alone.

Did I hurt her, that lovely who just left?

The flowers just smiled at me.

At once I was covered n roofed

With an assembly of butterflies.

The lovely is back with her friends

I am blessed, a divine blessing

Which I admire the most in my life.

  2. Lemons or oranges,
    Seems like lemons,
    But they look orangey green..
    Should be Jasmine, the white flower.
    but why is the post titled butterflies..
    So I read!

  10. I was at the Butterfly World in Florida recently and a whole bunch of them were flying all over us – such a bliss it felt! I will share a post sometime in Feb/Mar.

    I am sharing pics of them on my Instagram these days though.

  11. The gentle graceful beauty of a butterfly adds a sense of calmness to our lives. They are constantly on the move, so we must appreciate the limited time they give us to enjoy them.
