These Halcyon Days….

                     

                                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. 😉

Are You Yearning for Snow???

 

yearning haiku

I am! 😉

We’ve had quite a bit of rain recently, here in BC but just a bit of snow that melts before it hits the ground at lower elevations (where we are). 

This haiku and photo came to mind today, as I scanned the cloudy skies.

Any snow where you are?

Have a wonderful, magical weekend! 🙂
