kirigirisu ~ haiku

chorus from the wings

katy-did-she-didn’t-she-did

green big bug singing

*

kirigirisu

serenading camouflaged

it just ain’t cricket

*

broadcast from bushes

nature’s night club naughtiness

now everyone knows

    1. Thank you for taking time to read and write in.
      Apparently they’re nocturnal…and it’s so good to know you live among silver maples…wow
      Note – my academic knowlege on the bug is limited to those syllables πŸ˜„

      1. I’ve never been afraid of bugs. I was a Tom-boy. And raised two sons πŸ˜‰

        I’ve got silver maples (not the syrup maple tree), various pines, other hardwoods, and some bird berry trees. And my old willow down by the creek πŸ™‚

      2. 😍 I can imagine your loving your space. I live among lots of mango trees and parakeets and squirrels and a bunch of noisy peacocks …and yeah…that’s grace

      3. I was visiting St. Augustine in Fl and the private park where the ‘Fountain of Youth’ is located had peacocks – colorful ones and a pair of white ones too!

  1. Loved it. I remember, at least once, walking in the veld, at dusk. Heard a cacophony and traced it to a katydid which fell silent as I drew near. His/her need was so great it started up again never mind the intruder on its private business! Did laugh. I live in South Africa, so yes, they’re pretty global.
