DESTINY

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

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

Lost butterflies

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

Fluttering its tiny wings
   Floating in the air

 Flapping and swaying

 In the gentle breeze

Nature's Erasures

Butterfly soars O’er charred, black, Forest floor …Life returns once more…

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.

HAIKU SPARKLE


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
