The Butterfly Effect
My Wandering Wednesday Series are dedicated to the flight of my imagination now and then, captured by my camera lens. And then, songs and movies simply fill in the gaps for the right captions! I try to give you the back story of the picture too. Perhaps you may see a tale hidden there. Check the previous posts here.
When we see a butterfly, we never think of the caterpillar’s journey. We see what our eyes show us. We might admire the beauty, crave the agility or envy the freedom that they have. Yes, it constitutes the fact, but it is not the complete truth. People are just like butterflies.We build our perception around what we see in them. More often than not, it is what we want to see in ourselves. And if they turn out to be any different, we have cause to say they have changed. But have they really? Is it them or is it us? Have we witnessed their Chrysalis in totality? If not, we can’t be the one to throw stones. For if we do, the butterfly will simply fly away. Because Change is the only Constant.
The rains last evening were gently strumming their fingers across the green landscape. I saw this gorgeous Common Mormon (Female- Form Cyrus, thank you Wikipedia) on the nearby Kadama Tree. It was a symphony like no other. The colours made for a framed masterpiece. The eco system is so self sufficient that you can’t help but marvel at the divine technology. The flower needs the butterfly, just as much as the butterfly does the flower. No one is more important. Both are equal in their own might. Together they created perfection. And left me with this souvenir.
