Milkweed Haikus

Contributed by Lorrie Preston

Milkweed...airborne seeds
Holding promise for Monarchs
Carried by the wind.

*******************************

Starry milkweed blooms
Pollinators dream come true
Nature's sweet perfume.

*******************************

Strong, fleshy milkweed
If given a chance by man
Monarch's answered prayers.
