just trying it out.

Butterflies fluttered
Your benevolance they kiss
Slowly they decay


Heart at a weird pace
Such a quirky little thing
To just hear your name

    the butterfly haiku is a nice death poem, butterflies eternally the image for ephemerality, it seems. Haikus are a beautiful form–so simple and striking. Keep working with them. I also really like your sonnet, and the form is pretty good. What I like most is the Spanglish–definitely keep doing this! Spanglish is destined to become a literary language, its transformation as such happening as we speak. You could be on the cutting edge of this. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were literary journals, perhaps online, dedicated to Spanglish literature–check it out, will you?
