Butterflies Don't Care

This morning the butterflies left 
my kitchen curtains
upon a morning breeze 
they fluttered away
through the open window
laughing as they flew
I followed with a net 
but off they scampered
over the neighbour's hedge
and into the sunshine

Returning to my kitchen,
I could hear their titterings,
their mockings
at their new found freedom
but I was left alone
thinking how much
those curtains had cost me
at Woolworth's and that I 
probably could never find
another pair like them..

but butterflies don't care..

    Oh Valerie...don't know why this poem just captured my mind....absolutely loved this simple pondering !! I pictured (maybe I'm wrong)...butterflies of the fine fabric..had faded away in the if they were alive, and able to leave those old curtains behind....irreplaceable Woolworth curtains. Lovely....:)
