    Yes, it's a wonderful treat, one phenomenon riffing off another. :-)
    Sirocco winds-
    the leaves spinning out
    of butterfly dreams

    Liked the intervals of butterflies.

    cold spell
    iguanas ?
    falling from trees

    Lovely uplifting verse, Jean Leblanc. There's always those fragile moments of loveliness in life after a stormy interval.

    Simply elegant!

    spring morning–
    the butterflies paint
    the gentle wind
