Leafs

Two leafs that flapped in the wind were tethered by the tip of a tree branch, in one morning. 


I saw a Cycad Blue on another tip in another morning. 


I wanted to think as normal as you do, as though nothing had happened, as in the eyes of other hikers.

But it was Sunday, a day to switch off my mind again; it was so silent that I heard a story about leafs.

They were butterflies when leafs withered.

The two images match each other. Assemble images next to each other and you have an extraordinarily good diptych / brita

Leaves morphing into a butterfly.
You would think of this possibility.
I am so literal,
and your words push my imagination.

I like the way your mind works -- and the way a leaf becomes a butterfly.

Smart little butterfly to mimic a leaf for survival, maybe?

Perhaps the two leafs were trying to mimic the Cycad Blue butterfly. Mimicry is the sincerest sign of flattery.

I believe you are right -- that butterfly looks just like a leaf. What a sweet story. It would make a good children's book!

Such a pretty butterfly -- my first time seeing one like this. :)

some leaves heal, while some kill. But your 'leaf' on the second pic is a sweet view!
