Sweetness (haiga) CarpeDiemHaikuKai #531


“ …It was but yesterday I thought myself a fragment quivering without rhythm in the sphere of life. Now I know that I am the sphere, and all life in rhythmic fragments moves within me”. Khahil Gibran

Chèvrefeuille reminds us about all living things including insects however small are children of Mother Earth just as we are.  Sweetness being the theme I see this as found among all of Mother Nature`s offspring as well as the sweetness mixed with tang tasted from fruits.

I get home late,

gnats fly wildly at the door

wise spider waits.

  1. Ants outside...even red biting ants OK - inside not so much.
    I must have billions large and small under my home.
    I would think they would enjoy the open land near by...but maybe the shelter under the suburban homes is a draw?

    Yes, wise spiders. Just watch out for the few that are poisonous!
    I knew a gal who got bit by a spider and her whole ankle swelled up!

    PS a bit different in translation:
    toujours and tous les moyens ~~~ my friend. :)

  2. Good translation! Those ants certainly do not suffer claustrophobia ...I sure hope I never come back as an ant:(

  3. Great translation! I think ants are just not claustrophobic...I sure hope I do not come back as an ant...well, any insect...maybe a spider, that would be cool to web like that and catch my prey.
