NaPoWriMo: Day 3

Monarchs in April

Each spring, the milkweed
Warm, honey-spiced, and piquant
Intoxicating

Tempts the butterflies;
Umbels bobbing in the breeze
Vibrant, solar-hued

Monarchs stop to perch
Sunning cathedral glass wings
Luminous and frail

Leaving behind eggs
Dotting leaves like fine brocade
Or fragile beading


Day Three Prompt:  Involved making a list of words and finding other rhyming words via an online rhyming dictionary.  The only thing I wound up keeping (despite having done the initial exercise!) was one of the original words I came up with (piquant, courtesy a random word generator).  Nothing else from the exercise appeared in this haiku sequence, ha ha.
