Did you know?

The European Peacock are more commonly known simply as the Peacock butterfly is found in Europe and temperate Asia as far east as Japan.

It should not be confused or classified with the “American peacocks” in the genus Anartia; these are not close relatives of the Eurasian species.

The Peacock butterfly is resident in much of its range, often wintering in buildings or trees.

It therefore often appears quite early in spring.

So to me, it has beauty but is fragile as it can be caught by bad weather in early spring.

beauty found in early spring

fragile bad weather

blown away in strong winds

Voice at Sea

As Andy was walking along the beach, he heard someone calling for help.

He saw a flock of birds circling in the air.

Watching in the direction of the birds he was surprised to see a guy paddling a kayak, blood was dripping down his face.

Racing to him through the water, helping him get ashore, he found out that the birds had attacked him.

He must have got too close to their nest that was the reason for the attack.

Checking the guy out, his injury wasn’t too bad, that guy learned a lesson never go near breeding birds.          100 words.

I think this could be Week 8

Sweet Serendipity by Lee DeWyze

A few lines from the song.

And I’ve got one pair of jeans

They’ve been stretched too far

And now they’re weak at the seams

I can’t say what’s next

And I got nothing up my sleeve

But I don’t lose my head

Here is a Tanka prompted by the song – Sweet Serendipity by Lee DeWyze

he has nothing now

somethings keeping him afloat

bare necessaries

watch the sun set over him

giving strength for the next day
