Haiku 52

	
	Haiku 52
	
	
	cocoons under leaves
	split open, new wings drying
	white butterflies flit


	white butterflies flit
	brilliant yellow squash blossoms
	zucchini to share


	white butterflies flit 
	tomato flowers await
	cool summer salad


	white butterflies flit
	tiny cucumbers prickle
	winter’s dill pickles


	white butterflies, gone
	eggs now hidden beneath leaves
	for next spring’s cocoons

    It looks like this is about the spot I started reading you haiku!! Let me see if I saw the tanka already.

    I loved how this set of haiku came full circle. You have made me long for summer this morning!

    Thanks, Heather. Summer where I live is hot and miserable. I sincerely hope it's not that way for you. I enjoyed reading your work yesterday, as always... Jack

    You really gave me a clear idea of where all those white butterflies went (and made me mad hungry for salads). Charming haiku!

    I like how this flowed along on the same theme and the one rhymed with pickles so cute!!! Wonderful!

    Thanks, Andrea. I didn't realize there was a rhyme until I posted it. I considered changing it, but decided, why not?

    I don't think so. These are very small white butterflies. Thanks for reading... Jack
