Changing Clothes

New clothes are a daily task, but if you look closely, you’ll watch it happen in nature, too.

Cairns Birdwing, the largest butterfly in Aust...Warm Winds of Change

Spring warms to beauty
Dressing fields in lovely sun
Transforms to summer

Caterpillars swarm,
Luscious trees lose their luster.
Clad in swiss cheese green.

Spinning dreams of flight,
In chrysalis changing rooms.
Butterflies emerge



Carpe Diem started off it’s June with a lovely prompt about “changing or switching clothes”. Of course, I love jumping to figurative meanings, so I threw some curves into this poem. It’s haiku trio where I tried to loosely relate the three stanzas, yet they should be able to stand alone, as well.
