White flower and black butterfly
The tired and weary black butterfly flew to the red rose. It said, “Please let me sit on you.”
The red rose lashed the butterfly saying, “Look at your ugly colour. I won’t let you sit on me.”
The black butterfly cried and flew to the distant land.
It saw a yellow sunflower. It loved the colour. The butterfly asked the sunflower, “Can I rest on your lovely petals.”
The sunflower gnarled saying, “Oh you black ugly creature, look at my beautiful colour and see your black colour. Go away”
The butterfly felt hurt and took flight.
It reached the beautiful lands of Hawaii. There it saw the beautiful violet flowers. They seemed dancing with the wind. It reached one of the purple-colored flowers that looked soft and delicate.
It said, “O delicate flower, please let me curl on your soft leaves.”
The flower spat the absorbed dewdrop on the face of the butterfly saying, “How dark and gloomy you look, go away.”
The black butterfly felt shaky on such hate and flew to find another home. It flew and reached a garden with moist soil. It had beautiful blue Hydrangea. The flower looked glowing in the sun. It reached the flower to ask the permission for napping on its curled petals when it overheard the flower saying to the Pink Hydrangea, “I hope that unsightful butterfly never comes near to us. It is so black, and if it sat for us, no one would love to look at us.”
The pink Hydrangea replied, “I wish it never curse me with its awful body.”
The butterfly lost all hopes of finding a beautiful house.
While it was sitting with teary eyes thinking why she was so black; her eyes caught a glorious sight. It saw a beautiful white lily dancing with joy. It had dew drops settled on its petals. The butterfly was lost in the glory of the lily.
The lily noticed someone looking at it keenly. When it turned to meet the staring eyes, it was shocked to see a beautiful black butterfly. The lily said to itself, this butterfly is amazing, look at its velvety black wing and the silver lining on them. I have never seen such black beauty.’
It stared at the butterfly wishing to start the conversation. It wanted the butterfly to touch its petals with its velvety soft wings. The butterfly cried and said, “You might be wondering how black, ugly and defaced I look, of course, I will never curse your beauty by curling on your petals.”
The white lily felt sad and answered, “No, I was thinking what beautiful velvety wings you have and I love the silver lines on them. I just wished if you would like to make me your resting place and together we can add beauty to each other.”
The butterfly felt overwhelmed and sat on the white petals. The combination felt amazing and became the greatest attraction for the passersby. People loved the combination so much that they designed their homes and dresses and cars on this theme.
Red rose, violets, sunflower, blue and pink Hydrangea all wanted the butterfly to sit on them so that people may notice them as well. The black butterfly added to the beauty of each of them. People loved the combination of black with red, black with violet, black with yellow, black with pink and black with blue.
The butterfly felt happy as he had so many places to rest and it loved everyone equally yet the love it had for white lily made them look the best together.
