Butterfly



A butterfly with broken wings can no longer fly. This one landed on our table at a friend's wedding. The poor creature tried several times to flap its wings but was too weak. I wondered then if its wings would grow back so he could fly again or if it'll just stay that way until it loses its life.

It was the newly-wed couples' turn to have their first dance and as we watched them, my thoughts on the poor creature suddenly shifted to the merriment we were witnessing. When I looked back to where the butterfly was resting, it was no longer there. I just hope that it flew safely back to its refuge.
