butterfly



love is like a butterfly
as soft and gentle as a sigh
the multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
love makes your heart feel strange inside
it flutters like soft wings in flight
love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing


- from the song Love is Like a Butterfly by Dolly Parton

Lovely photo, Susan. Was that taken in your garden?

A tree planted by my mom when she lived in my backyard, I believe it is an ornamental cherry.

It's lovely that you now own a tree that your mother planted. Hope you're having a happy weekend, Susan!

Great Poem and picture. I was in Atlanta and was amazed at how green everything is there, unfortunately we came home Saturday to leafless trees. What a preview of things to come I got in Georgia...it was worth the trip.
