Good one, Tom! Dissolution of the caterpillar is not a loss, except for the remaining caterpillars.
Yes, Steph! And the dissolution of the butterfly is not a loss either. 🙂
Wonderful photo Tom!
Thank you, Belinda! A Red Admiral was on our sunroom window today with its wings spread. I ran to get a camera to get a shot of it from inside the sunroom. Just as i pointed the camera towards it, it closed its wings. 🙂
Thank you, Kym! 🙂
Every time I try to photograph a butterfly, moth, bird, hummingbird, they always fly just when I’m finally ready! Grrr. Nice haiku.
Thanks much, Michael! A Red Admiral was on our sunroom window today with its wings spread. I ran to get a camera to get a shot of it from inside the sunroom. Just as i pointed the camera towards it, it closed its wings. 🙂
I agree, every ending is a new beginning, very buddhistic. I like that. Have a nice day with your Trump fan, haha, regards Mitza
My Trump fan left and went back to the assisted living center. She’ll be back next week with my brother-in-law and his wife, from Texas. They, too, are diehard Trumpeteers. I’ll keep my mouth shut (we hope) mostly. 🙂
You know what is so funny: the word Trumpeteers sounds like the German word
Trampeltier and that means clumsy oaf:) Must be terrible to be surrounded by Trumpeteers, haha
They are clumsy morally and spiritually, not materialistically. They were taught to worship (and acquire) things.
Great haiku and delightful image
Thank you, Jazz… it was in the backyard. 🙂
Another beautiful shot, even with its wings closed. Tomorrow’s another chance 😊
Thank you, Dorinda. 🙂 This isn’t the butterfly — that i mentioned to people — that was on our sunroom window; this is an altogether different one. This one had its wings open but it has a wing fragment missing; so a closed wing shot worked out better.
oh no! what happens when there is a fragment missing? Does it grow back?
From frumpy caterpillar to beautiful butterfly … life does not get any better than that.
Yes indeed, Linda! Radical transformation is possible! 🙂
Nice! Both the photograph and the haiku!
