    wooded path
    lost in the brambles
    sunshine

    A delight of double meanings, read differently with each read. A keeper! Thanks! Michele

    streaming sunshine
    through the evergreens--
    rustling of wings

    Very nice.

    This is one I wrote last summer.

    hole in one wing
    the luna moth flutters the other
    hopelessly

    Thank you for the wonderful butterfly haiku. It's only a human who might find a dead-end a "dead-end". ;-)
