I have written a story called “White Butterfly” – hope that you enjoy it!
The rain falls down slowly from the sky, coming from a gray blanket that covers all in its cool embrace.
Perched on a plant is a white butterfly, long considered to be a symbol of good luck.
Its wings shivering, it’s living in its primetime, yet it’s under an unforgiving destiny, with cars and chimneys suffocating every second of its existence.
Then, it flies toward a flower in front of a window.
Meanwhile, someone is watching from the inside, saying, “Wow, that butterfly looks beautiful!”
However, he doesn’t know that they are imprisoned in their fate.
Just like us humans.
What does the butterfly represent? Does it represent good or bad luck?
These are the thoughts that went inside my head as I tried to write these piece. It is true that butterflies are beautiful, but it is inevitable that something happens whenever I see one.
For the most part, I have associated white butterflies with good luck – and yellow butterflies with a good day. Obviously, black butterflies signify that something awful is about to happen.
How about you? What do you think about butterflies?
