Haiku About A Weeping Butterfly

The butterfly weeps
sad spectacle moves God’s heart
will send healing touch

    I can never know that a butterfly can cry … poor thang …

      Indeed, poor butterfly. 😦

      I wrote this haiku about a week ago.

      Remember RestlessButterfly from Xanga? (The woman who was actually the subject of that story I told you about my stupidly not knowing how to use a left parenthesis and the number 3) had posted a photo of herself on Facebook crying and shedding tears and below that she had posted the caption Don’t worry. I’m all right.

      But from the photo she didn’t look to be all right.

      So that haiku immediately popped into my mind.

      So I wrote it and posted it on her Facebook page to let her know that God had heard and seen her tears and He would be sending divine aid to help her.

      • Sherrie de Valeria said,

        You really love her, right … Gosh, make want to cry too.
        Don’t like to hear you so unhappy …
        I wish you happiness at this time and healing, Chris!

      Thanks, Sherrie.

    A different facet of your multi-faceted skill, Chris. And, they all shine brilliant. 🙂
