Dream Carrier

Ever since I was a little girl, I believed butterflies were dream carriers. I don’t know where the idea came from or why I decided delicate wings could carry such a load, but whenever I saw one I wondered what dream it carried and to whom it belonged. Perhaps the bright colors rich in optimism inspired my imagination or maybe the wings themselves, so light and airy gave me hope that my own dreams could come true.
