Killing time in small town Alabama

Butterfly Silhouette: Stevenson, Alabama: April 4, 2012

The silhouette of a large butterfly on a window looking outside on a sunny day.Butterfly Silhouette

I was initially disappointed I couldn’t get the colors of this butterfly because I was on the wrong side of the sun, but now I really like the look of the silhouette.  It put me in mind of a song from Toad the Wet Sprocket, my favorite band since high school.

He’s a wonder, he’s a little black-wing boy
Oh my daughters
He’ll fill you with joy

In time I will
Collect the world
The hearts and limbs of
Butterflies you who soar o’er
Calvary
Had you wings of
Butterflies oh father, I offer
Butterflies

“Butterflies”
Toad the Wet Sprocket (Fear, 1991)
lyrics via Poem Hunter

Behind the cut I’ve embedded a youtube video of the song.
