Haiku & Other Poetry, Random Rants, tutto e niente

Don’t Call Me Daisy

Awaiting their time

To spread their wings and take flight

The dashing pair sleep


This buggy haiku was inspired by seeing these rascals (pictured above) firmly stuck to the side of a building last night while walking home from dinner. Social media posting help me identify them as dasychira meridionalis. Honestly I’m still creeped out by them but I wish them well as they transition to this.


And thanks to Ronovan Writes for the perfect prompts (hope/dash) for my new buggy friends! I substituted awaiting for hoping because I liked the way it sounded.
