humans circling earth
look down on the whole of it
their home suspended

evolution does
not allow mountain goats to
cope with dynamite

hurts to be human
ignorance is bliss they say
i want to forget

for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads


i have a real toad living outside my building
no garden there, real or imaginary, but the toad gets by
grass through the sidewalk cracks
derelict building next door with space under the stoop
in other words, lots of bugs
the toad is fat

maladroit animals
how many can we think of
i can think of one

haiku for Enchanted Garden with Real Toads


When is a word the opposite of its meaning? For example, in the estimation of some, the word groovy is no longer groovy.

If someone calls you silly, that could be serious.

Awesome is not awesome.

Like is, like, not always liked.

Inarticulate is rarely used by the inarticulate.

Contrariwise, the end is usually

The end.

mothers sacrifice
a bedrock human virtue
its absence brings shame

for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads and Pic and a Word Challenge


bugs spiders and gods
have multifarious limbs
humans manage four

with helping hands and healing
