They fly always
in twos

white butterflies

in spiral flutters
around each other
and sometimes
tracing together
figures of eight

or is it infinity
they wing

always looping
their together


never touching


About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. It needs keen and sensitive eyes to capture these images and great skill to bring then to life as you have doneQ!

    • Noel–thank you. I swear, in August, I always see these paired butterflies, never one, and never touching. It’s really interesting to watch them circle-fly together, never so much as brushing wings together.

  2. For me it’s like lovers in the state of vulnerability ~a scrutinity of the eye.. you’re a gem!

  3. A sort of dancearound each other, just like lovers. Great words
