Have you ever been kissed by a butterfly? In our garden we have all kinds of flower plants that butterflies and hummingbirds love. Every summer we get flocks of white butterflies in our garden. They are not big like Monarchs but kinda in between them and the little orange ones. As you can tell, I am not a butterfly specialist. :)
But I do love to watch these beautiful (in their simplicity) creatures. When they fly, it is like a circle dance. They circle up and down, and around each other. A dance, more than a flight.
While watering one evening I was watching them dance, and one was circling up towards me. I stood very still, mesmerized by its closeness. It circle up to my lips, lightly touched them, then circled down. I felt like I had been kissed by a butterfly. I think it was thanking me for tending its home.:)
I stood there a long time without moving, just relishing the moment that I was kissed by a butterfly.
