Getting lost is not a waste of time

kirigirisu ~ haiku

chorus from the wings


green big bug singing



serenading camouflaged

it just ain’t cricket


broadcast from bushes

nature’s night club naughtiness

now everyone knows


Mindfills by s.s. for

    • 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 ๐Ÿ˜„

      • I’ve never been afraid of bugs. I was a Tom-boy. And raised two sons ๐Ÿ˜‰

        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 ๐Ÿ™‚

        • ๐Ÿ˜ 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

  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.
