Monday Morning #Haiku 197 & 198 — Grasshoppers (03/04)

Heat wave ~ all is hay.
Green grasshopper courts danger
on busy Lizzie.
#
Perched on pink petal,
grasshopper survives morning
thanks to lazy birds.

Monday Morning #Haiku 139 & 140 — Brush Pile

brush-pile

Dead pile of sticks
masks inner community:
toads, insects, spiders.

Brush pile tangle
haven for songbirds to feast;
no hawks admitted.
