Embracing Fall

Butterfly beckons
spreading wings to welcome fall's
golden tapestry

The above image reminded me of Fall in its peaches and coppers and yellows and so I decided this would be a nice way to embrace the upcoming Season. The writing accompanying the photo is a Haiku, a short form of writing dedicated to nature. Though small in size, it can pack a powerful punch. As I can get wordy in my writings at times, I felt the Haiku would be a good exercise to rail me in a little. The first line is composed of 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables and the third line has 5 syllables. Thank you, beautiful butterfly, for staying so still and calm despite the chaos that surrounded you during a recent Butterfly Festival. I know there's a life lesson for me to be learned here and am grateful once again for nature's classroom.
