Flutterby Streams


Flutterby Streams

All around the flutterby’s
dancing in our midst
Streaming signs go unseen
spirits that we miss

Flutterby, Flutterby
Light upon me
Share your memory store
Flutterby, Flutterby
Don’t be shy
Enlighten with aura’s spore

Hands imploring, exploration
into delicate wisps
Hearts awakened soon are taken
with your delicate kiss

    Beautiful Debra. Did you know that butterflies were originally called flutter-bys? This is an example of a Spoonerism - where sounds in a word get mixed up. This is a Spoonerism that become an actual word - replacing the original word. Interesting.

    Those mystical cartoon balloons that linger in the air. On afternoons so lazily as we just sit and stare. So delicate that they could pop if you just turn your head. It's always nice when they're wrote down and somebody has read. :) Fly away little Flutterby, to cast your spell on thee. Fly away little Flutterby to cast your spell on me. Peace.
