Tanka 2

in the midst
of my tantrum
I paused to witness
a stag beetle
carrying a pine nut

    Wow, you know ADHD never even occurred to me when I wrote this... but I can see how you saw it that way! I was more so implying that there other people and other things that have it worse than you... even when you're feeling down. Thanks for your insightful comment!

    The message in this is very deep... No wonder Richard was inspired and thus penned another deep piece... Well done Timothy.

    The ability to stop and see the small is a very large thing.
