Buddha Rocks Project: Beetle

Visit buddharocks.deviantart.com for a bounteous source of photographic inspiration by Mr Eric Alder.

NATURE’S WAY

Shiny as a polished boot

the small armoured tank scuttles

watched by an eager bird.

*

A boot shakes the ground

the bird sees its pace

marks the race and swoops

as the boot descends.

*

Tasting the acid

of a soft belly

she drops the beetle

in time for the boot.

*

The beetle is detritus

while the size-thirteen black boot

marches on oblivious.
