To A Butterfly, Haiku

See you later!
See you later!



Hello, butterfly,

I'm so glad you fluttered by.

I happily sigh.




If all life, so keen,

In your beauty that is seen..

no more bad or mean.




Butterfly, we see,

the wonders of life, to be..

You're statement, so free!




If questions we asked,

were so easy, as you basked..

all of life, unmasked.




If we all could ride,

to fly high, next to your side,.

Such joy, to confide.

This was totally awesome...I'm so glad I "fluttered by" to read this enchanting haiku and see the photos of the butterfly's movement.

Voted up and awesome.

I love this, whonu and I love butterflies. I have Tiger butterflies in my garden, along with the occasional Monarch. We also have butterfly moths in the summer. They are moths as big as butterflies, but come out at night. We do have some strange creatures here in Central Florida!

We lived in Florida, for a few joyful years and loved the butterflies, bird life there, and fine weather. Thanks for the memories. whonu
