Haiku about Baseball, Beads of Water, and Butterflies

I have written a number of haiku over the last few years.  Here are three of these poems.

Haiku #1: A Baseball Moment

The crowd goes silent
The ball flies into the sun
Heliconius Charithonius (1)
A fielder prepares

Haiku #2: Beads of Water on a Leaf

Small beads of water
Tense! Waiting to trickle down
A pink leaf holds them

Haiku #3: Butterflies Take flight

Tranquil-no wind
Sun's warmth, the only caress
Butterflies take flight

-- Anthony Hopper
