The Bug Carousel
Henry picked a ladybug;
Hadley chose a fly.
Mine was striped but not a bug
I could identify.

Up and down and round and round,
With music jangling on,
We rode the carousel until
The time we had was gone.

Grandpa took the photos;
Nana thought up rhymes
And had...Read More

     As their youngest member naps peacefully,
          A wailing baby stirs, ignores looks made silly,

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

A Classy Little Lady
She’s a pretty little lady
with a polka-dotted dress;
sometimes her mood is yellow
other times, brown or red.

Scientists call her Cleopatra,
of the Coccinellidae race;
Her top wings are elytra
protecting those below their space.

A family member of the Beetles,
no, not the ones who sing...Read More

Premium Member Multi-Legs Bug Me

Simple bugs that can fly through the air
Like a bee, ladybug- they don't scare.
Multi-legs frighten me
From all spiders, I flee
Centipedes make me jump on a chair!

Many legs that can race cross the floor
Bring a fear that I cannot ignore.
When they...Read More

Up went the wings on the ladybugs back

Looking for Bugs
I want to look for bugs and things
Like butterflies and stuff with wings
I want to catch them in my hand
I want to look for bugs

I will look for bugs with you
Together we can find a few
Like moths and ants and...Read More

Happy Snappy Ladybug me.
I am as cheerful as you think I ought to be.
I fly brief ways from flower to flower.
Some are tasty, others are sour.

23 years old,
Old enough to drink wine,
Old enough to drive a car,
Yet still, she sits at the kids' table,

She decides to get away,
Stay away from the politics and the war,
The cursing and the football,
All the horrible things that the “adults”...Read More

   Dressed in red with black polka-dots, looking really grand

a ladybug landed on my knee 
how lucky could i be

as if she'd flown a mile

She gives me a sassy knowing dare me grin as she begins to devour her ladybug sandwich.
I watch her crown nod up and down in rhythmic quiet as she eats in gargantuous bites.
In fascinated horror, I try to imagine taking...Read More

Although I'll never know you,
Even though you were not mine,

Even past the end of time.

And I often wonder why,
God took you home with him so...Read More

Gifted within me
Mysteries of the mind.

Remind, find, unwind, reside deep inside, within mankind.
