Birds, Bugs and Bees

Grasshopper
There go the birds and busy bees
As I disturb them walking by,
Stalking sometimes on my knees.
They rightly feel the urge to fly.
They know I’m there and don’t care why.
Mosquitoes on the other hand
Come closer and with gusto land.

Linked to the Cosmic Photo Challenge where Dale offers the prompt, “the birds and the bees” with “all the varieties of our feathered friends and with all bees, bugs and creepy crawlies allowed”.

Also linked to Trent P. McDonald’s The Weekly Smile. I am trying to sprout broccoli seeds, but they seem to mold in the mason jars. Solution: keep trying! One thing did work. I was able to make a mask (of sorts) out of a t-shirt. I put the t-shirt over my head and then raised it up over my face. I use the sleeves to tie it in place behind my head. And that success, even if the broccoli sprouts so far haven’t worked, made me smile. Thankfully I don’t have to go out much.

Also linked to dVerse Meeting the Bar in the last hour for the prompt for seven-line poems.

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

  1. lol, yeah, mosquitoes (those blood suckers) are not quite as shy as birds or bees, and if you are thinking the more symbolic meaning, well, the same thing goes there as well,those nasty blood-suckers… I want a picture of your homemade mask 😉

  2. Interesting that people are trying to fashion masks in many ways. It is not generally done here, unless you work in a chemist of hospital due to a shortage of PPE. I wonder though if we need to do it. The Asian community here are very comfortable doing it and already had their supplies.
    I like your final photo!
