There’s magic that we will not see
That monkeys with us all the while.
We think we’ve got it figured out.
Who knows what it is all about?
Fortunately, we still smile.

Beetles on a Rose Blossom

Author: Frank Hubeny

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Frank, you have the most wondrous ability to say profound things in short verse! I admire that. The photo of the Japanese beetles made me gasp; destructive little buggers. Glad you joined in.

  2. For me, unseen monkeys are part of the pack of spirit guides that buzz about me, whispering prompts and edicts in my ear.

  3. Okay, I read this differently than some… monkeys with us (as in monkeys [around] with us). Either way, what was said about your ability to pack it in a small package is true.

  5. Masterful. Concise. Beautiful. The world presses down on us, we try to use our big brains to push back, but none of our cleverness counts as much as being able to smile and lift each other. But then, you said all that already, and so much better. I love your stuff Frank.
