Kikaku's "in the rays of the setting sun"

Inspiration haiku for today's Sparkling Stars.

in the rays of the setting sun
there flutters along the city street,
a butterfly

alone, forgotten, 
only a common mountain flower 
to comfort me

a lonely flower

my companion

for one night

© Chèvrefeuille (2005, first English haiku ever)

chilled fall breeze
alone, waiting spring's return
yellow warbler departs
