Butterfly Kisses

Posted by SR on January 27, 2005

Butterfly Kisses:
A kiss given by placing the eye close to another's cheek so that the lashes barely touch the skin and then blinking rapidly.

'She seemed to melt against him in her terror, and he caught her in his arms, held her fast there, felt her lashes beat against his cheek like netted butterflies.'
Edith Wharton from Ethan Frome

Also a popular wedding song by Bob Carlisle.
