As I Am

Not all are annoyed by loneliness, this butterfly does.

It moves higher low, higher high, lower low, lower high and continues in an uneasy pattern.

It is doubtful about me in the surroundings. It shows all its mimicked eyes.

Oh no, I am not the messenger of loneliness.

Not all are annoyed by loneliness.

A treehopper is more philosophical. It cogitates about an answer in the midst of swinging leafy branch.

It moves higher low, higher high, lower low, and lower high following the surrounding pattern.

I am a nobody.

Not all are annoyed by loneliness.

Am I seeing things as I am?

Loneliness can be so peaceful at times but sometimes it can be so painful...Though I think your creatures prefer the loneliness to prying eyes!

The beauty of a small butterfly is always a secret to be discovered.

Sometimes loneliness can be a good feeling. I wonder if the butterfly agrees.

Loneliness is a matter of choice I think. If we are happy with ourselves, we are never lonely. Your butterfly shots and wisdom are simply beautiful :)

I,definitely, feel alone and lonely sometimes. Since the loss of my forensic nursing job three years ago, after 21 years in that role, I am very lonely for my colleagues in that field since I am now on such a budget, I cannot even attend conferences. I miss the work and the stimulation of discussion about changes in the field, etc.

Blogging does help with my loneliness and, of course, I truly relish being alone.
