on forest trail

spring wildflowers 






This gaywing was one of five wildflowers scattered along the trail on a recent hike. This magenta colored tiny flower (3-7″ tall) is oftened mistaken for an orchid. Looking closely, it resembles a tiny plane. With gaywings and four other wildflowers scattered on each side of trail one will understand why zigzagging occurred.

The haiku, as haiku do, raises the question of who is meandering. That’s the fun of haiku. Maybe you wish to change or substitute a few words and write you own haiku.
