from out of nowhere

a flutter

” … I come here every day, say hello to the butterflies, and talk about things with them. When the time comes, though, they just quietly go off and disappear. I’m sure it means they’ve died, but I can never find their bodies. They don’t leave any trace behind. It’s like they’ve been absorbed by the air. They’re dainty little creatures that hardly exist at all: they come out of nowhere, search quietly for a few, limited things, and disappear into nothingness again, perhaps to some other world.”

~ Haruki Murakami

    That’s very true I’ve hardly ever seen a dead butterfly, only once that I can remember seeing one. They are very much like dust and I guess don’t hold together for long after life has stopped. Here today, gone tomorrow, very fairy like! 🙂
