Unsure Economy

Dancing butterflies, await Optimism holds, nothing is secure A nation pauses.

I love the butterfly metaphor. The frail wings, the creature you can crush in your hands. Definitely a good symbol for everything which is going on in economy and even politics. Well done! Nathaniel

The butterfly flies through this ring of fire. We all stand at the water's edge. A superbly written Haiku Poem. It sings with resonance. Keep sharing.
