A faded sunflower, it's seeds have been eaten by iron butterflies.

I also thought of a sunflower, but your iron butterflies are wonderful. Good work!

This is an incredible image.
I love the idea that you are
now putting your own images
on your site, and writing
buttku's to accompany them.
I wondered if you had been
snapping some great shots
of the years.

Wow, what a fake out. This
being Sunday I was unprepared
to encounter a Magpie challenge
like a day early. Congrats on
being #1 over on that site,
even beating Tess out of the
starting blocks. Still love the
poem, sir, even if the image
is not yours.

Dear Lane: Congrats on the #1! I do admire how you conjured up the attitude of the 60's with the reference to "Iron Butterfly" All of a sudden "I get it!" In a Garden of Eden Baby! Right On! Excellent Haiku!

I thought it looked like a flower, too, but opted for a different approach. But I do think you're a meany for not giving Tess a mention, to say thanks?! :)

An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him. :)

I just saw this on another blog where it was used as an inspiration for a poem.

Great sentence. I wasn't really aware of the music group Iron Butterfly. Either way, it's a good line.

A one-line haiku! I don't know the Iron Butterflies group/band, but the image compels

Hallo, Lane!!
Is this the latest musical instrument you've made? This time one in the brass family to ads to the strings you've expertly built? How does this one sound?? Maybe you could compose a sonata for it; I'd love to hear it!!!

My computer caught a truly evil virus.
Been down for a couple of days.
Unwatched pots boil.
Thanks all for all the comments.
