    Beautiful! Thank you for this.

    Thank you, Jessica. It really is a beautiful creature and I'm delighted I discovered it – it is so fitting that it is through a special renku on The Haiku Foundation and thanks to Karen Cesar's verse. :)

    Marion, I love this haiku and the memory of that lovely and magical butterfly when it appeared in the Snow Renku. It was just so perfect–and is your poem. Beautiful work. :)

    Oh, thank you, Mary! I remember looking up 'glasswing' when I spotted it in Karen's verse and gasping when I saw the photograph. We don't have many butterfly varieties here in Northern Ireland and I found the glasswing so exquisite.

    Marion, quite the precise attribute to the haiku, Renku or not. Glass wing. Jan in Texas

    Seriously, Jan, I couldn't believe something so delicately exquisite existed! Thank you.

    Such a nifty verse Marion_!
    __ We have no -glasswings- here, but because of your thought, my imagination has certainly begun to flow beyond the research needed to answer my question. What is a glasswing? Grand!
