An early summer walk along the river on the cyclist/pedestrian path. Life seems to have exploded with these first days of warmth. The air is full of lazy insect buzzing and the chattering clatter of birds is almost deafening at times.
Cyclists buzz past me ‘ting-tinging’ their bells – it’s such a bother for them to have to share the path with a walker. Each seems to feel he is in an important race for some championship medal. Dressed in their bright coloured, tight-fitting outfits they remind me of mad butterflies.
Speaking of which, among the flowering plants, the early butterflies have already left their cocoons. Flitting and dipping, they leave their eggs on the tender leaves … a new generation will soon be born.
taking flight –
a butterfly shrugs off

Inspired and linked to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai for a double prompt – Haiku Special and Ghost Writer post. We were to write a 150 word (or less) haibun, including the haiku written by Kala Ramesh, this month’s featured poet.
