An attempt at haiku, inspired by the marvellous Lycoris Radiata and the mesmerising homonymous melody, composed by Spikes.

/ /ABOUT THE LYCORIS RADIATA:
The Lycoris Radiata is a flower whose first seeds blossomed in Eastern Asia. In Japan, this beauty is known as โ€œHiganbanaโ€œ (or โ€œequinox flowerโ€), as it usually blooms either in late summer or during the fall. With long stamens and strap-like petals, its appearance recalls that of a spider; hence, the nickname red-spider lily was also attributed to the flower.
The Lycoris Radiata has earned the reputation of red magic lily or hell flower, due to the body of myths that have been spread on its account: rumor has it, that these bright-coloured โ€œManjushageโ€ (โ€œheaven flowerโ€) leads souls into the afterlife. Legends also say that, if you meet someone you will never see again, these flowers may grow along their path.
Generally speaking, so, the Lycoris Radiata is a symbol of death and rebirth. On the notes of the piece quoted above, in this haiku, the red lily plays the role of the butterfly, traditional allegory of the intimate metamorphosis of oneโ€™s soul. Changes make, parts of us die, other evolve or just bring new ones to life. Change are, thus, both witnesses and accomplices to the metamorphosis that everybody, inevitably, needs to go through, to fully blossom their potential into reality, alas.

Crimson buds wave

Crimson buds wave a summer in full bloom as

Crimson buds wave a summer in full bloom as my fall shifts to flight.
