house

held by a swallowtail
with tattered wings


I spotted this giant swallowtail, an uncommon species here, on my front porch just after I’d posted about something else to The Morning Porch, so decided to make an Instagram post out of it instead. The haiku came to me in the shower. Since it also works as a caption, an old-postcard-style haiga seemed the obvious approach.
