delicately

to touch the bright flame,
the moth considers her quest;
cocoon sleep or death?

Good imagery< I liked "cocoon sleep" especially.

Nice haiku! I wish I could compose profound thoughts within seventeen syllables! You certainly are capable of it though! :)

Another fine haiku Suzanne,

The pondering metamorphosis v death is intriguing, maybe a flame might coax the moth into emerging.
Damn, the matches are all wet, I guess I´ll have to wait for them to dy out.

:wink:

to anticipate touching what is unseen seems far more interesting than seeing what the hand can not touch

Thank you Charles and Philip. And welcome.

Dante- You you are a teaser.

Metamorphosis v death ...
But isn't cocoon sleep actually death?
Is death by quest more appealing? It would probably hurt, life does.
But cocoon sleep, well, that doesn't have life pain.

The crazed moth has quite a dilemma to ponder.

I've got matches, got anything to light?
I am guessing that you do.

But sleeping through life is no different to being dead in the first place. Unless there's a metamorphosis at the end of it all that is. :?
