For some things I look up the words in different languages. I sometimes think it leads me to where they originate from. It became a habit when I moved to America. My favorite word up till now is Butterfly. It has the most beautiful and to the mind speaking word in all languages I think. As for in French it’s Papillon. Mariposa in Spanish and Vlinder in Dutch. They are all lovely like, like a butterfly is too.


I give pleasure and delight
my colors many very bright
I spread my wings as I fly
people watch me passing by
my name in french its papillon
my beauty is lovely next to none
the riddles there and plain to see
what am I supposed to be

  1. Those wings are just amazing! What is really striking is they are actually different on each side!
