Haiku to a Butterfly

Updated on September 25, 2016



Butterfly, you soar,

Your bright colors we adore.

Petitely you sit.




Butterfly fly high,

Stretch your wings up to the sky.

Graceful, we admit.


Butterfly, so sweet,

Light upon your flowered seat.

Once where fairies lit.


Vibrance adorned friends,

Summer now ends, Fall begins.

Splendor to submit.

      You do haikus well, whonu. I love the stanza about the fairies. I've noticed more butterflies in my garden these past weeks. It must be their time.
