A caterpillar
in its cocoon, so are we
in our bodies

biding the moment
to be a butterfly, free
among the flowers

silent majesty
tender voice of high summer
flying into fall

an empty cocoon
you flew like a butterfly
never to return

Written for DVERSE POETS’ PUB’s Meeting the Bar: Haiku Sequence Prompt

Especially remembering my father who passed on earlier in the summer.

    1. Hi, Arlene. I am ok naman. Minsan, parang Hindi pa run makapaniwala na Wala na Ang Tatay at nalulungkot Kasi matagal ko na siyang Nakita in person ago siya namatay. Thanks for the kind words. I hope you are doing well especially given the current conditions.

  1. Chasing Dreams Now
    Butterfly Wings Dance
    And Sing Your Parents
    Never Die in
    Of Loving
    Is Still Real ๐Ÿฆ‹
    Love Breathesโฃ๏ธ๐Ÿ™
