chrysalis dangles...
swaying the life of
a monarch

monarch butterfly...
the flight of many years
many seasons

The awesome monarch butterfly, traveling so far. Nice haiku to honor such a magnificent creature.

Anne Jeffries said...

I am reminded anew of how strong a chrysalis is yet now fragile it appears. Much like a newborn.

Cathy Keller said...

Your haiku brought back beautiful memories of my my life in Monterey CA when we lived at Ft Ord. There was the return of the butterflies every spring!!! It was exciting and beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend! Thank you!

__Ooooh, Gillena, your fine haiku reminded me so, of an older haiku of mine; it could have been a monarch.

__Humbly I leave this old echo:

listen
among the silent flowers
a butterfly
