warmth of summer sun
butterfly basks in the glow
breaks free, flies alone
This photo and haiku (the haiku is one I wrote) always bring to mind “halcyon days” for me.
I just ♥ the word: halcyon.
The warmth, the calm and tranquil beauty of a butterfly, basking in the sun.
We are currently enjoying “halcyon days” here in BC, sunny and warm fall weather; so beautiful.
Yesterday, I was out and about in a sleeveless dress, late in the afternoon!! That’s a warm October, for here in Canada. 😉
1. A kingfisher, especially one of the genus Halcyon.
2. A fabled bird, identified with the kingfisher, that was supposed to have had the power to calm the wind and the waves while it nested on the sea during the winter solstice.
1. Calm and peaceful; tranquil.
2. Prosperous; golden: halcyon years.
