ugly and awkward
only purpose to survive
until she cocoons

destiny won't crawl
springs forth in fanciful flight 
angelic rebirth

*the destiny of the butterfly!

Haiku 8 - bees and butterflies, ants in action, shimmering pools

what new plant is this
flowering bees this morning
and butterflies too?

running to and fro
a group of ants in action
searching for food

bathed in the sunshine
shimmering pools of water
pulsating with life

Amazed, flutters to the skies
Contained. Settles and sighs.

Haiku 5 - mournful cries, way of nature, flight into eternity

mournful cries fill the air
mother bird calling for its baby
eaten by the cat

mantis catches butterfly
I am sad: yet, that is 
the way of nature

loud feathered thud
- flight into eternity
deceptive glass pane

Fluttering its tiny wings
   Floating in the air

Pretty butterfly dances
 In the gentle breeze

The sound of a snapping twig
Or butterfly wings

First Date

Ball of butterflies;
knots of anticipation,
tickling me within.

Pick-up at 7;
ready to go around 8.
patiently he waits.

Off to the movies;
holding hands, clumsy and shy,
ever so awkward

Horror flick on screen;
sharing popcorn and candy,
snuggled in close.

Walking home slowly;
lean in;first kiss at the door,
foot popping galore.

Linger here then
On restless shores;
Support lost causes

Sooner not later
Tides change;
Not always better

Politics like jam
Or peanut butter spread;
No use without bread

Speak softly
Mutter wisely;
Politically correct

Once in a while
Truth entertains fear;
All hell breaks lose

I think of you
All the time;
Retrospective anthem

Listen and learn
My father said;
He's dead, I'm afraid

Loiter and see
My mother said;
She's dead, it's true

Strange voice tone
Less dreary than me;
Out of this time zone

Mr Eliot he said:
"Mermaids don't sing to me;
I wake up and I drown..."

Thinking makes sad
Feeling turns bad;
Know now I am mad

Thinking and feeling,
Doing No-thing;
Enlightenment comes

Look now
Don't stare;
Then you'll see

Seeking sweet nectar
the butterfly flutters by
teasing the flowers.

Pretty visitor
Golden, colorful wings sigh
Murmuring happy
