Prompt 16: Transience or Permanence

Thanks to Christine of Quiet Paths for her prompt of permanence (or transience)for this week. Thanks to Christine, also, for the following examples from Chiyo-ni, Woman Haiku Master, and for the wonderful photo.

rouged lips
clear springwater

clear water
no front
no back

this is my favorite of these, I think:

a butterfly
in front and back
of the woman's path

and by Christine:

folded into time

tall cedar groves grow ancient

stones linger eons

aspen leaves float the surface

rainwater to distant sea
