Soldier Season

It seems to be Soldier Beetle season as they are all over the place. I even had one in my car the other day! I shall respect their privacy and avoid photos of them mating, but here are just a few of them wandering about:

peace

time takes
a brisk walk
I skip and hop
to keep up
puffing cloud breaths
in cold winter air
~
just yesterday
spring arrived
minutes passed
in summer
now festivities
rush
~
my desire
to pause
like a raindrop
poised on a leaf edge
as time
slows to treacle
to sit
and in sitting
be at peace
