Butterflies...

When you see a butterfly, do you associate it with a thing? Do you remember someone or anything when you seeing one? When we see butterflies with bigger wings and those with brown color, my grandmother would tell us that it is one of our relatives who passed away. Is it true? Do you believe that someone who passed away would reincarnate in butterflies?

I should hope not. Being reincarnated as an insect that lives only a few days after it comes out of its cacoon would be such a downer.

I guess you're right. Luckily, I don't believe in reincarnation. I believe that there's a place called heaven.

The size of butterfly matters a lot-when I was young there used to be large dark night butterfles that would fly around into our candle lights. They Were usually dark with sinister dark round spots allover the wings-I would often associate such butterflies with ghosts and would hesitate ran away at the very site of them!-But the pure white and yellow butterflies we would find in the river banks and on flowers I would always associate them with beautiful girls in beautiful dresses!

I really love watching butterflies fly. They're just pleasing to the eyes. I just don't believe that someone who passed aways would reincarnate in butterflies. The thing is, some of those that passed away might use butterflies to let us know that they're okey and to let us know that they're always with us. It's just a symbol not our reincarnated relative.
