DESTINY

ugly and awkward
only purpose to survive
until she cocoons

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

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

quivering upon a rose ...
ephemeral glow

Lost butterflies

 Leaves swirl in the wind
            Lost butterflies hitch a ride
                            New destinations
                                          ``

On top of the old gray barn

Across the paved road

of wings and sweet nectar -

Butterfly In A Bottle

Slowly opens the eyes
Amazed, flutters to the skies
Contained. Settles and sighs.

Autumn Butterfly

Whirling through the grove, 
Dancing in the changing winds:
Pirouetting leaf.

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

Butterfly

    Pretty butterfly
Fluttering its tiny wings
   Floating in the air

 Flapping and swaying
Pretty butterfly dances
 In the gentle breeze

wing face
nice flower is watched
