To know lovely lies
in the shade of butterflies
how high shall I fly

I love butterflies as well, there is something beautiful and graceful about them. Just like your poem.

As I high as you can, sigh
But not to high, as my eyes can't see
The flattering wings and the smile from thee
Very nice too

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Sunshine~
One beautifu Haiku inspires another ...
thank you, poetess of delight.

I love the flutter
Wings of butter-color flit
Lifting my spirit

Sunshine, this really is delightful. I love it so much. I think butterflies are like life:

Beautiful, fragile;
Simple yet complicated.
Metamorphosis.

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

Sunshine ...

To know lovely lies
in the shade of butterflies
how high shall I fly

* Don't chase the high flyers
... Like apples at the top that appear to be best ... and no better than the rest when examined up close

Fly into the sky, high
As you do see the light grow bright,
shades of crimson, in deep blue light.

Shades of ethereal passion,
Clouds with winged angels fashion,
Fears disappearing into distant oblivion...

Nice little haiku, Karilea,
Regards,
Sudhir



 Life is like a painting,
That in an art gallery is left hanging,
Though many come just to look at it,
A very few actually come to enjoy it.
