  • That is so beautiful and put so beautifully, Treeseed. I'm in love with your words here.

  • To me it brings up the image of a butterfly and seems like a nick name that someone innocent and childlike would use for a butterfly.

    Also it seems like it could mean someone "mingling" at a party, in a sincere way, only hurried by circumstance. Like a hostess who wants to be able to spend at least a few minutes with everyone at her party.
