September Tan Renga #9

between dusty cars

an orange butterfly flits

the traffic rumbles

©️2018 Kim M. Russell

losing time in a standstill

dreaming of wings shifting fate

(my response)


In this Carpe Diem Tan Renga episode the featured haiku is a contemporary one written by Kim Russell of Writing in North Norfolk (see link above). I was thrilled just a couple of days ago—when sitting on a four-lane highway in a traffic jam a Monarch butterfly brushed against my window. I immediately thought of Kim’s haiku.

  1. how ironic that this happened, and well, at least, the standing stop-start offered you a chance to create something wonderful from it …. nothing but to selectively dream while waiting in all that grumbling noise 😉
