Popular belief has it that the universe is comprised of atoms. In reality, the universe is actually made up of…

Oh, I have lived lifetime upon lifetime, participated in events that have shaped this world, loved the best among you and the worst, but I must admit that never in all the many years of my immortal life have I witnessed anything more beautiful, touching and devastating than the living embodiment of Death gently and patiently explaining to an elderly butterfly that her time has finally come.

  1. This is so sad and beautiful.
    You knew the butterfly would pluck a heartstring.
    The way you’ve worded this is so tender yet heartbreaking.

    “Death gently and patiently explaining to an elderly butterfly that her time has finally come.”

    I can see the poor butterfly barely managing to beat her wings.
