A swallowtail butterfly is depicted in this detail from a mosaic in Springville, California.

Yellow butterfly,
the journey’s fraught with danger—
will you be my guide?

  1. I love this! I see my Mother as a beautiful yellow butterfly when I am out walking. It brightens my day, my spirit. I miss her and your sweet poem reminded me of our bond.

    Beautiful thought!

  3. What a pretty mosaic. It’s dangerous out there for butterflies, so often they’re wings are tattered. I had two of those swallowtails in my yard today. Or, it might have been yesterday… I do know there were two though! And one was feeding on the coreopsis.

  4. Wonderful fantasy in your words and photo.

  5. Yes. She says. We both have butterflies guiding us today, dear MMT. Thank you!

  6. We all are in need of God’s guidance.
    Happy weekend


  7. Am sure the beautiful butterfly is guiding you ~ lovely haiku ~ Xo

  9. Hoping the love light will guide the butterfly safely. Beautiful mosaic.
