Premium Member Grasshopper Soup Please
Grasshopper soup if you do not mind.
Fry the legs first if you would be so kind.
I know they are not easy to find
But I already have the bread bowl lined.

Woe-Man
Halt! Halt! Give em your hand but not your hearts
For when they hover around you, 
You are an imminent carcass. 
These vipers of Eden unrelenting, carry about their venoms 
Fluttering and flapping with the disposition of a butterfly 
And a...Read More

Thinking you are all of that.
We have a committee meeting.
You think you are phat!

What’s to be done? Your head is so big.
I know said the chairman.
Took a hammer and
Bam! Caterpillar arrogance smashed in all directions.

Premium Member Taking LadyBug for a Walk
Taking my ladybug for a Walk
Casually so to not arouse any suspicion.
Because the birds would be jealous
The crow would squawk his displeasure.

The grasshopper, who usually rode my fingers
Would be so miffed, he would stop speaking.
Every creature in the garden thought...Read More

Premium Member garden elf guards the tomatoes
dainty garden elf
plotting the tomato growth
wating patiently

butterfly stops by
a pretty flit and flutter
checking on progress

our bee takes a whiff
and promptly buzzes off
not liking this scent

green grasshopper lands
takes enormous breath and sighs

July twenty-third, no one’s birthday.
Have to feed the cat.
He wants in.
Feeling guilty that I have allergies to him.

Take a walk around yard.
Admiring my flowers.
Early in the day, so not melting yet.
Grasshopper on my leg.
Irritated a bit, but not a lot....Read More

Spring
Spring 



A sweet whistling breeze 
Sways upon 
A mighty tree 
Bare and dead as it seems
Awakens from a deep sleep


A cool, crisp mist
Trails through the fog
A dreary winter left behind 
Buds open up
And leaves assume their position 

Black gloomy silhouettes...Read More

Like butterflies and stuff with wings
I want to catch them in my hand

I will look for bugs with you
Together we can find a few

"Beyond lychgate lies future death" she says,
cucumbered eyes slid back under cauliflower sky,
brimming smithereens of harkening demons.

Been in saddle some time since torchlight began,
a child's silent castle ago. Chaos-times cut alleyways
through rose-lettered circles, reads trashy maid.

The journey fell sword north...Read More

From diluvial binary code extracted
from white walls lined

The Malaysian forest bears fruit of disguise. That powdery translucent pink circles the orchid mantis’ frame, measuring at six centimeters, about the size of an adult pinky finger. Her two black and clear patterned antennae pierce the sky. Her...Read More

Which are the silliest?
Seahorses or horses that see?

A grasshopper or a hopper full of grass?
Which would be more interesting to invite to tea?

or a mantis, praying?

And here's the photo: a willow that does not cry
a pond in which poverty is looking at herself like a man
hair like thatch on this tawny-colored head
and a grasshopper that does not jump anymore

Spider soup, come take a taste.
She tickles and wriggles,
 and adds fluff to your face.

Mosquito mousse.
Dive in, but beware.
She will sting you, 
Without a thought or a care.

Grasshopper gravy.
The legs are easily seen.
My first day of cooking.
It is pretty keen.

Premium Member There Was A Grasshopper
There was a grasshopper in my porridge, and he had stopped hopping,
But luckily I found him before he was one hundred percent gone.
I fished him out with a silver spoon, and his eyes popped open, 
He looked hopeful.

Beauty Comes To Make Happy
Seized I the dream of last night
I let the passion go out too far 
The blue shining morn comes- 
as the new born dew, 
as grasshopper on the grassy leaves
and hums on my ear -
 “Seize not, grip not
