She was in her best attire. Her scent was irresistible. 
Eagerly, her eyes scanned the distance, waiting for him.
His kiss. She’d waited all Spring.
Closer and closer he came and flitted right past her, settling on another, two rows away.
Her heart of petals burst as the butterfly flew away, having drunk his fill.

Loving the different viewpoints on a kiss ;). And I was wondering if you were going for 10_10_10_10_5 when I read the first couple of lines :).

Shailaja V · January 22, 2014 at 5:50 pm

Now that's a great idea! Need to see if I can do it once during the week 🙂

The next time I see a butterfly on a flower, I will think of this post :))) So delightful. Never thought of a kiss that way…Wow!
