Mindlovemisery's Menagerie, Photo Challenge #22 "seesaw"

Credits: Sarolta Ban
A new photo-challenge is "on" at mindlovemisery's menagerie hosted by Bastet. This time a gorgeous, manipulated, photo by Sarolta Ban. You can see what 'manipulated' means in this photo. Two butterflies on a seesaw. The photo is in black and white, but as I look closer to the butterflies, I think these are Monarch butterflies, very common in a big part of our planet. Here a photo in color of the Monarch butterfly.

I have written a lot of haiku about butterflies, because I love these fragile creatures. These Monarchs are so colorful ... like a sunlit morning.

Monarchs together
playing above the fields -
children's laughter

children's laughter
resonates through the barley-fields
their new seesaw

their new seesaw
painted in black, white and orange 
like Monarchs

To Late for the Ferry

Yell Sound, Shetland, 2014, by R.A.D. Stainforth

A wonderful photo of the Ferry which brings people to the Shetland Islands. The lake ripples in the wind and above the lake clouds are showing their white-grey colour ... it looks like it will going to storm there.
It's in balance and only a thin line of mountains between the sky and the lake. This photo is 'picked' at Magpie Tales (Mag. 233) and the goal is to write a phrase towards the photo or a poem. Well ... I am a haiku -poet so I love to share a haiku inspired on this photo.

Well ... not as strong as I had hoped, but it was a joy to write/compose them. See you another time ...
