Mind Traps

Amongst the tall, yellow grasses, there were purple and white butterflies opening and closing their wings.

Sometimes the wing is in repose; sometimes the wing is spread.

The sharpness of the grasses, as opposed to the geometry of the flickering rhythms of the butterflies, reminded me of signals; signals that were similar to the activity of communication between people.

I have used purple against the yellow to give vibration, adding to the visual rhythms.

The eyes in the wing look in different directions, and add to the rhythm.
