Haiku: Autumn steps

First dried leaves falling

Follows the brilliant colors

Nature’s brevity

Haiku: The Smart Web

Sturdy symmetry

Made through natural instincts

So spins the spider

Successful urban dwellers

Stressed birds find their space

Haiku: August summer slows

Sun’s angle changes

Shadows grow longer each day

Days heat breezes by

A tiny eating machine
Eating to survive

Typical Lifespan:  “Most monarch butterflies do not live more than a few weeks. There are about 3 to 5 generations born each spring and summer and most of the offspring do not live beyond 5 weeks. The lone exception is the last generation born at the end of the summer.

The last generation of each year is the over-wintering generation that must make the journey back to Mexico. Rather than breeding immediately, the over-wintering monarchs fly back to Mexico and stay there until the following spring. In the early spring, they fly north to the southern United States and breed. Over-wintering monarch butterflies can live upwards of 8 months.”

Uncomplicated thoughts: Humble places

“Blessed are they that see beautiful things in humble places
Where other people see nothing…” Pissarro

Camille Pissarro (July 10, 1830 – November 13, 1903) was a French Impressionist painter. His importance resides not only in his visual contributions to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, but also in his patriarchal standing among his colleagues, particularly Paul Cezanne and Paul Gauguin.
