    __Just my humble echo to your fine haiku, Kashinath; the symmetry, that mirrored image of a butterfly's wings. _m

    a monarch
    its wings on the soft breeze
    this essence

    Life comes full circle, and one may in the course of things gain the freedom to become a vagabond, flitting here and there……very nice!
