swims in the wine
Issue 12.1 | 19 October 2012
We both need to take more care of our wine!
spooned from rioja
the winefly stumbles
over damp assam teabags

More insect-ku! I love the stuff!
rain drenched awning
a jumping spider steps
across the desk
Spiders aren't insects, but thank ku, anyway.
the slow rise of a stick bug’s leg
Da Lat Christmas
up and down the tree
a roach steps on its shadow
a bumblebee crawls
a doe’s ear twitches
from the doorstep a beetle’s legs point to the sun
melting ice cream
the long shadows of ants
within all the eyes of a jumping spider me
from the edge of a half chewed leaf rising moon
Love the way I get such a strong sense of time passing in these few words.
Disturbs your crimson wine
And the setting sun
a wave through the legs of a millipede
Three cheers for the six-legged!
I had to smile, imagining a tipsy gnat, doing the backstroke in your glass, sighing with pleasure at the sunset you are both watching!
Sweet – obviously a regular occurence! I also love insect-ku :]
midge haze –
a dragonfly skip jives
with its reflection
