In solitude I dream tonight
And watch a moth in fevered flight.

It’s drawn toward my quaint porch light
And flies consumed with all its might.

Through open window I can see
Its desperation shared with me;

How freedom in this world is light—
And we as souls are drawn to fight.

Though freedom’s light may cause our death,
It’s worth the risk with every breath.

I understand the moth’s sad plight
When drawn to the glorious light.

Though it knows not of human trust,
It buzzes on because it must!

A Moth Meets Devastation

I was reading in my study
On my desk a moth lay stunned,
It had flew into my lamp,   
I fear 'tis moribund.

It had fluttered around the room
Erratic in its flight,
Yet in all that empty space
It collided with my light.

I felt sad at its demise
As it flopped beside my book,
How unfortunate I thought
If only it had looked.

I imagine it flew towards the light
In hope of navigation,
Heading, it thought for safety
But meeting devastation.

Kind of a party, a get-together for friends,
Free wheeling, snacking here and there  -
You know how it goes.

Warm afternoon - moist - ideal weather:
Some of the guys had already dropped in,
More had said they were coming
Just before the rain;
There was a real buzz in the air
In the crowded kitchen.

She was a pretty woman, gentle-faced, quiet.
I had been after her  all afternoon  -
A touch on her arm, a nibble of her neck  -
Seems  I went too far - you know.

A rolled-up newspaper appeared in her hand.
It came down on my head.
The whack of the smack
Was the last thing I heard.

Haiku 5 - mournful cries, way of nature, flight into eternity

mournful cries fill the air
mother bird calling for its baby
eaten by the cat

mantis catches butterfly
I am sad: yet, that is 
the way of nature

loud feathered thud
- flight into eternity
deceptive glass pane

The Ladybug

Eight dark spots
And a faded orange shell
Against cream fabric
On my pillow

Cicadian Rhythm

cryptic cicada
nocturne of tymbals thrumming
cicatrix in brain

dead silence of night
my last breath in abeyance
for cicada song

Insect Part Three

          Insect Part Three

Once there was a forest of the night
Vegetation underbrush so thick
Little creatures walk around in it
Never in a straight line
One bug in particular stood out
Antennae moving north and south
It had something in its mouth
Perhaps another nasty insect trying to escape
Once there was a forest of the night
No light got in no life got out

the life of a fly
twenty four hours to be
not a bee, a fly

Golden Butterfly

Life is like
a twinkling of an eye

Sure is the flight
of a butterfly

With 20 strokes
of its wings

three scores and ten days

only 8 happy moments

its life comes to an end

Insect Part Two

            Insect Part Two

The truth is, my first insect was murdered
Right by these very steps
The death came at the hands
Or should I say, feet, of a postal worker
I called it Insect Sam
It was old and missing a limb
Three legs…maybe more…
I don’t remember
It was very long ago
And poor Sam surprised me
Insects of his species don’t move slow
But to his credit, he was a simple ant
He had nowhere to go
My next bug will wear a collar and stay inside
Away from further postal compromise

not here

not here
she silenced a cricket
my heart still beating
to cricket songs
without her

Beautiful Moss

Unassuming beauty of emerald evergreen.
Verdure cool patches of sombre sunscreen.

Flowerless soft carpets of impasto  strokes.
The gorgeous mossy sponge .. vibrance evokes.

The gregarious green hosts.. fungi, frog, insect 
The bedecked forest floors.. symbiosis perfect.

Soft velvet cuddles close....the roots and trees  hard.
Light and shade brighten up....the dank courtyard.

The rolling stones all frown..they grimace.. in grief.
Can't we gather the Moss?..the beauty ..leaf by leaf !!

A Web Of Death

~~*~~ Spider makes her beautiful web, it is a magical thing in reality, intertwined, interlaced, entwined, a gossamer veil, a tangled trap. A web, lovely but meant for death, then suddenly a great wind blows, destroying her pretty woven dream, undaunted, she sets about repairs. ______________________ June 6, 2013 Poetry/Verse/A Web Of Death Copyright Protected, ID 13-483-750-0 All Rights Reserved.

                                  without orchestra worry 
                                  claps condemn to death

Malaria a shadowless giant
 masquerading himself
As a bird no an insect
He is a muchroom without wood
Milking and sucking breeze
Of human blood
Malaria massaging the body
And pores of the skin without licence
He is a mad man without trace
A route without path as people
Path through malaria to homes
Of no return under the foot of mother 
earth without a murderer
Malaria a prey that rules over her
Malaria is an innocent master
A dog with no teeth that devour
Lions with metal teeth

Fond Memories

The lights that blinds the moth at dusk
Is like the elephant’s white tusk,
Which charms the eye but robs the purse:
A gentle animal’s great curse. 

Alike, when love by time is borne
Within a mind to duty sworn, 
Fond memories the heart enslave
And both are carried to the grave.

Wild Bee's Dilemma

Always, bees compete defensively.  
Each flower grows healthily. 
Infection junkies kill lustfully.
Managed nuks offer perfect “Queens Royal” –
Sadly, techniques use viruses’ 
     willfully x-terminating young zygotes.

Inch Worm's Lunch

      Taking Pleasure In The Inch Worm’s Lunch

Inch worm looks up on a hunch
Red and green birds dot the sky
Blue covers their moves in warmth
Gold sun fires on and on the hour’s tempo
Follows the waves along the shore
Crashing, their end is sure to come
But not before the inch worm has his way
Spun down from trees on pure white silk
Satiated on vegetation in the light of day
Movements designed to find
Lunch waiting by a rock or twig
Perhaps in the shade where bugs play dead
Pretend as they may
They too will end under the golden sun

Cicadas' Song

A fine-spun shell clings to the weed 
my arthritic fingers yank from soil 
of the same drab tinge.

My ears ring 
with the constant humm-m-m—
insistent joy—familiar music 
from thirteen years past.

Invisible cicadas sing as they mate,
unaware of their fate, 
unconcerned with the weight of time,
while my work-worn joints
made me painfully aware of mine.

Insect gost 

They host me in my dreams 
While sleep I turn my side they 
Trun there story I asked what is 
The moral of there death why 
The soul not get rid off from there 
old name they shown me 
The pain of cage living like age 
Calling by insect gost 

With love all
