Dull and broken


I found a butterfly hovering around the garden. It chose to perch on a plant with no flowers. No flower to sip some nectar from. I wonder. It's dull and its other wing is broken.

I notice that I am attracted to everything that is dull and broken. I don't know if it's a bad thing or what, but I am definitely seeing a pattern.

I don't think this butterfly is dull and broken. It represents the extremities of colour. And its 0-value is very deep and shiny, I wouldn't call it dull.
Its 255-value is very bright.
I like the symmetry of the fence behind the plant and butterfly.
Perhaps it doesn't liker flowers. Perhaps just like you have vegetarian people this butterfly is carnivorous?

hi Peter,

well, i said it's dull simply because it's not as colorful as the other butterflies i've seen...colorful meaning there's more than two shades (at least). i say it's broken, because the the left wing is literally broken. the way i wrote it, the words 'dull and broken' seem all too literal but in all its perpetuity, i am all being rhetoric and figurative. could be about the butterfly or could be that i am talking about something else, say me for example.
