Flutter

Flutter: the power of resting without firm anchor, manifested on water, in boats, in clouds, in flowers, in scent and, repeated over and over again, in the stop action repeated floating of leaves and butterflies finding anchor and then tossing it away. Essentially, all that floats is a boat and all that flutters is a swell, and so the wind and the water are music, and music is all a-flutter, full of stops and starts and lines of energy that take off from each other only, without other ground.
