a butterfly flies – May 12, 2015


sweet-smelling garden
a moth or hummingbird
both gather nectar

a butterfly flies
only in the field
of sunshine

summer morning
butterflies on my flowers
flying friends

the moth
big as a hummingbird
sucking nectar

Written for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai – Butterfly

 This was one of the more elborate prompts this week for Chèrvrefeulle … full of not only some beautiful photos of butterflies but couple of wonderful series of haiku dedicated to them.  Drop by and have a look.  You’ll certainly enjoy it and maybe you’ll be inspired too!
