Fallen Blossoms

"落红不是无情物,化作春泥更護花."

While water is flowing, wind is blowing, and time is walking, I can see blossoms at Cerok Tokun being separated and fell apart. They decompose; they will go back very soon, to the branch.

This is the story I heard a long time ago.

At the same time, it is believed that every butterfly is the soul of a flower; it comes back, to look for its own self.

A Blue Pancy

And the story goes. One of them failed to find back its flower. It died after exhausted and heart broken.

And the story goes, from Cerok Tokun, to everywhere, as long as water is there flowing, wind is blowing, and time is walking.

The flower decomposes, and goes back to the branch.....very thought provoking.

I have recently captured that same weed flower. It's still alive. Seems to last many days unlike flowers that I grow.

That orange/blue/brown butterfly is surely the spirit of a wonderful flower.

Flowers and butterflies, they always come together.

"The butterfly is a flying flower, The flower a tethered butterfly".

Need your opinion, how long does it take for insects to decompose? I had two green shield bugs, over the weekend, when i came back to school, they died. Three days later, there were no trace of the bodies at all. I was amazed.

Its just like our journey here on earth, time will come, we too will one day be the fallen one...

I love your story very much.

I wonder whether the butterflies manage to find their way home.

This was a very philosphical post about the realities of life. I think I'm headed the way of the butterly but not in so picturesque a fashion, I'm afraid! Beautiful tale and beautiful pictures, as always.

In life there are stormy days and times when we all fall and wither.
