Flowers That Fly

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
~Irish Blessing~

Butterflies are self propelled flowers.
~R.H. Heinlein~

If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies.

But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:
And now from having ridden out desire
They lie closed over the wind and cling
Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.
-Robert Frost 'Blue-Butterfly Day'~
