Carpe Diem - Butterflies; Writer,'s Digest - Descendence

I'll soon start to keep my haiku at different memes and challenges in the same post.

My haiku for Carpe Diem, a daily haiku. Today it's all about butterflies:

a stroll through the woods
in the winter cold and snow -
dreaming butterflies

For the Writer's Digest Poetic Asides Prompt nr. 212, a haiku sequence about descendence that I didn't post yet because they seem to have a problem.


present becomes past:
sustained metamorphosis –
evolution key

Darwin's theory –
more than a controversy:
plain reality

humans admiring
some rare specimens at zoo:
chicken or egg first?

fossilized monkeys:
searching for the missing link,
some unknown species


  1. What a wonderful inspirational haiku Adriana. You brought winter and spring feelings together in one verse. Excellent.

  2. Lovely haiku. I'm already think of warmer weather and butterflies.

  3. yes very lovely to think of spring, sunshine and butterflies during cold weather :)

  4. I love your haiku. I can relate to those dreaming butterflies and winter. Nice poem on evolution as well.

  5. Oh, I like that, dreaming butterflies. So succinct, and yet it says it all. The evolution one is interesting, too. I liked the what you pulled into it.

  7. Thank you all for dreaming butterfies, too. Together we might bring spring back earlier. ;)

  8. Soon the dreams will be a reality...when the butterflies return!
