Butterfly book Pictures, Images and Photos

Photobucket is a great place to share and obtain photos, videos and little animated creatures for your blog. I am sure that most people already know about this wonderful resource; however, I just discovered it for myself. I found this picture by searching Surreal Fantasy Art. I was looking for something amusing to help jump start my daily writing. Something that might spark a small story or poem.

I really like this picture because it conveys so much. In the background you have a grass land and horses or zebras. You decide is it someplace like Montana or the Serengeti, it doesn't matter, does it? The point is the place could convey a real place. And then you have an open book with pages each one holding winged creatures. The words are the creatures and their meaning the wings that take flight. They transport you to other places real or imagined, either way no less fantastic. On this particular page a fea is holding a cocoon, not yet birthed, not yet written but it is out there somewhere wintering in its silk portective home. This home the mind of a writer. The end result a story. Much like the butterfly it takes flight. You never know where it will fly to or who will see and appreciate its beauty.

Today I will be the story and take flight...
