    To catch a butterfly
    a colorful cloth eating moth is still a moth no matter what you do or how you feed it
    a moth will always be a moth but never a butterfly
    and if you do not know the difference you will come home one day and find holes in all your ****
    Now your mad and cussing all butterflies,
    but its your own fault trying to catch a butterfly with a bling bling Net
    you should have known that with that net a moth is what you will get

    Insightful is a butterfly you see,
    more intrinsic must be the Honey for the butterfly to bee
    just to know a butterfly is the most you can hope fore and the secrete to that is to know one when you see one
    watch from a distance
    then let it be
    for to catch a butterfly is to kill a butterfly

    as one who has some understanding

    of entomology....I feel this....and I am also internalizing the truth you have laid before me...in your bottom line, as I see the butterfly personified.

    Sobering....for if the beautiful butterfly could choose, and would choose to be "caught"....it would seem that it still would be detrimental to its existence....in ways it has no way of understanding.

    hmmmmm

    thank you

    "if you truly love someone, set them free"...

    sometimes a beauty is so rare, all we can do is admire it from afar..

    and it's strange how when you hold a butterfly, the very thing that makes it so beautiful, it's outside appearance (it's colour),
    comes off on your fingertips....

    a great piece...

    I am incredibly honored by your ability to feel the sentiments of this flow and understanding the nuances of what I am feeling. When I was young and did not understand the nature of butterflies I would feel jealous and insecure when my special butterfly would show love for another but with age comes understanding and appreciation.

    thank you for read and the love

    I have always heard the butterfly tale

    was simply beautiful........I loved it.
