Yellow Butterfly

little butterfly
outside my dusty window
a yellow smile

My response to Carpe Diem #1635 “Go get yourself a saijiki and read it many times”. Kigo: butterfly

Today we have a classical kigo:  ‘choo’ or ‘butterfly’ and, as butterflies are seen for the first time in spring, it’s a kigo for spring. We also have two haiku for inspiration:

wake butterfly –
it’s late, we’ve miles
to go together

wings of a butterfly
how many times do they flutter
over roof and wall

Matsuo Basho
