  1. leaves me wanting more, wonderful

  2. That causes me to pause, peacefully. The butterfly had a thought. The butterfly’s thought is mine. The indigo bush is parched. How does the desire, and need for nectar overcome that fact?
    Really,a haiku. Very much. Parched against nectar.

  3. A very good sky-composition!
    Nice to see!

  4. hungry butterfly
    pauses at indigo bush


  5. Of course that would attract any butterfly

  6. Nicely written mmt. Really a haiku in the Spirt of Chiyo-Ni.

  7. wonderfully written!

  8. That would be a very brave butterfly to look for nectar in that landscape! Do you see butterflies in the desert?

      Actually, yes, there are butterflies in the Sonoran Desert. Not at the moment, but they will be coming along in a few weeks.

  9. Gorgeous! The photo too! 🙂

  10. I love the way the Indigo bush seems to be clawing at the clouds for moisture and I can almost see the clouds as a butterfly.

  11. A beautiful take on the theme butterfly. Loved it!

  12. it looks like it´s very warm in your area 🙂 thanx for your beautiful piece of heaven! !

  13. Brings such a lovely image to mind!

  14. I smiled when I read your haiku… that’s what a haiku must do.. bravo!

  15. WabiSabi brought up what I was going to question about butterflies in the desert. So do they appear only when there are blooms in the desert? amazing insects!
