butterflies are free.

Standard

after one final close look 

at the butterflies we raised

it’s time to release them back into nature

where they quickly find their wings. 

 

“the butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.”

-rabindranath tagore

stop time.

Standard

two of my grandies at the detroit zoo

experiencing the butterfly house

firsthand

and finding 

just who exactly

is patiently sitting with them

waiting for his identity to be discovered. 

“wonder is the heaviest element on the periodic table.

even a tiny fleck of it stops time.”

― Diane Ackerman
