More bugs (One Deep Breath)

As I thought more on this week's prompt, I thought of the summer parade of insects, and more came...

Cricket fiddle show
Continuing Engagement!
Lasts all summer.

Waterbug dances
A surface tension ballet
Bright trout swim below.

Praying mantis sits
Eyeing juicy grasshoppers.

Seventeen years wait.
Cicadas emerge and sing!
Hymns of pure joy.

Head to One Deep Breath for more insects...

The mantis one stuck me as funny! I also really liked the one about cicadas... they are such a perfect image of summer.

Ah, the cricket fiddle show got me from the get-go. And your delicious mantis ku? Also, scrumptious.

These are fun! I love the singing, dancing, praying, evangelizing, and fiddling. Such a happy group!
