Peepings of Spring

Friday, June 18, 2010

Little springing hopper,
sitting on a leaf
waiting to pounce?

Red-eyed insect-ine monstrosity
posed to threaten?

Fly away, little leaves,
before the green grass monster
bites to the veins.

Chlorophyll green, like spring apples,
sour and unripe, hanging
from the crab apple tree.

Knee high to a grasshopper,
just a little tyke
making a big noise.
