Severn, You know even I don't know which way my mind will turn. So often I am surprised with the end. Thank you for the comment. Scott, I think you are right, thank you for the read. Sunshine, Yes that is a big word, glad you enjoyed. Denise, You have a keen mind, you always catch that little devilish tweek. Thanks

Seymore, perhaps 'tis because (now I speak only for myself not all women mind you) butterflys symbolize two things #1 Metamorphisis (changes)...going from something as plain and ordinary as a catipiller to something as beautiful and different as a butterfly. Do you know there are no two butterflies exactly alike, like snowflakes. #2 Freedom...they go from being contained in something as restrictive as a cocoon to emerging with graceful wings and flying on the wind. Oh, what a wonderful feeling that would be to stretch those wings for the very first time
A butterfly dances gracefully on wings so fine.
A cocoon lies empty in a heap nearby.
A caterpillar once crawled there on soft spring grass.
A butterfly now flies above in summer skies.
