"B" for Butterfly

A butterfly on a Buddleia
Butterfly...A pleasant word to a french ear:It seems a joke:"A fly as soft as butter !"
Buddle, a botanist, gave his surname to this fragrent shrub which attracts these beautiful insects .
Coloured or white, butterflies are
Described as
Ephemeral, they look like
Flowers of
Gardenia, petals of roses in japanese

But they are also the picture of soul...

Arakida Moritaké (1473-1549)
"Une fleur tombée

A sa branche je la vois revenir:
C'est un papillon!"

Bashô (1644-1694)
"Sans devenir un papillon

Ah la chenille
Qui voit passer l'automne!"

La nonne Enomoto Seifu (1732-1814)"Le papillon est vieux
Mais son âme sur les chrysanthèmes
