And watch a moth in fevered flight.

Your Fly Is Down
break up, insect, metaphor,
You didn't mean to let me in
Could have crushed me like a bug
Instead you caught me
Ogled me through the glass

It wasn’t very fun
She bit me here, she nipped me there
(she even bit my bum)
But I had the last laugh...

blackbirds diligently lifting
the rain soaked fallen leaves

Strange insects invaded the hall

Cockroaches and bees
The smile on his face said it all

Poets' poems and poems for people
Only the single poem and private reader matter
Both kinds and anything between can...

One night a-twinkling in the sky,
I spied a clever firefly
Who glowed the same faint silver-gray
As stars a million miles away.
Although most stars remain afar

Landing on my eyelid
Nosing up my nostril
Tickling my ankles

A Long Shadow
imagery, insect, introspection, nature,
Slipping into shapes
sun drips streams 'round darkest depth
and I, feeling small,
find even smallest ants cast
shadows long 'neath vast blue skies.

where sweetness and fragrance
have long departed
a rain spider has built a nest
of autumn-dried leaves
covered with a blanket
of delicate silk.
The Cricket and The Dragonfly
insect, adventure, children, encouraging, farm,
A Long, Long Time ago, there was a cricket whose name
was Blue, she was named after the sky that she loved so true.
