“Our hours in Love have Wings….” ?
A Butterfly represents the power of the air, the ability to float upon the breeze. It’s ever changing flight patterns reflecting the nature of the mind…. in other words …. Freedom to flutter where it wants. Transportation, Transformation. “When the Butterfly takes Wing, There is nothing left of the Caterpillar…”
“I almost wish we were butterflies and lived but three summer days – three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.”- John Keats
The way Butterflies flitter and Dance among the Flowers awakens our own sense of lightness and joy… two of the most intense creations on this planet. One would not survive without the other, the flower and the Butterfly.
“Butterflies are self propelled flowers.” – Robert A. Heinlein
Equally a Butterfly represents resurrection and a microcosm of life in itself… complete self belief and the compression of time into a complete but very brief life. Perfect in its own time.
“The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.” – Rabindranath Tagore
This ethereal creature represents so many meaningful aspects of life to humanity from endurance to change, hope, transformation, resurrection and ultimately the human soul and spirit. It’s evolvement and completion. It will always be a timeless inspiration to me….
