Chasing Butterflies

Chasing butterflies. Small ones and large. Butterflies with bright yellow wings, and butterflies with dull brown ones. Butterflies stocking up on nectar, and butterflies fluttering about playing ‘catch me if you can’. Butterflies that allow themselves to be caught, and butterflies that are too canny for you.
Chasing butterflies. Both literally and metaphorically. Thoughts that descend on the brain and flit out of sight the moment to try to articulate them. Ideas that keep you engrossed for hours, but nobody else seems to care a damn about.
Chasing butterflies. Can anything be more fun whether you are five or seventy-fifty?

Drabble (n) - an extremely short work exactly one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to test the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.
