A rare and gentle thing


love is like a butterfly
as soft and gentle as a sigh

the multicoloured moods of love are like its satin wings

love makes your heart feel strange inside

it flutters like soft wings in flight

love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing


... that rare and gentle feeling that I feel inside ...

... whenever I am with you I think of butterflies ...

I love butterflies, I have them tattooed on my back. The meaning of new life & new beginnings meant alot to me when I had them done. Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures they are gorgeous.

Lovely comments thank you. It's a very wet and blustery day here today. I think I could just curl up and watch Tinkerbell and the Big Rescue or Butterflies. I loved the complexities of the character Ria and favourite tender moments such as sharing a love token of a pebble or leaf with Leonard. Must watch it all again soon ...

I saw a Red Admiral on Sunday - looking fresh and newly emerged, I do hope it has found a sheltered spot to hibernate - thinking of butterflies too.

The butterflies are sure to cheer you!

Butterflies, like birds, enhance our days, don't you think? I love the rich colours and perfect beauty of the butterfly that has just emerged from its crysalis with wings spread to absorb the warmth of the sun. x
