Butterfly Net

Butterfly Net

.

She reads him avidly

hungrily

looking for patterns

for answers

for hints

for clues

for oxygen to fuel

the breathless possibility

that she might be ‘she’

.

Meanwhile

he chases her soul

with a butterfly net

spun from the best

of his words

to capture her

completely.

This is not new – posted a year ago at least. But I still have the butterfly net somewhere.

    he chases her soul

    with a butterfly net

    spun from the best

    of his words

    to capture her

    completely.

    I love i love 🙂 🙂

    Butterfly nets remind me of playful summers and smiles late in the evening. What a great trip my memory lane… Thank you for triggering it.
