Paradise


I thought I saw Paradise,
And wondered if I was dreaming.


I checked with a butterfly,
But it was busy drinking.


My lady has an advice,
The scene is ever-changing.


Appreciate while it's nice,
For leaves are disappearing.


"Hoppers' Snacking Enterprise",
Is seen to be opening.


It's the Critters' Paradise,
That I'm actually seeing.

--- O.N.E.

p.s. In case you didn't notice, there are 2 grasshoppers munching.

  9. As always a visit to your blog makes me crack a big smile! How divine your surroundings are, I feel we are kindred spirits but living in such entirely contrasting environments, love the grasshoppers and all the rest too:~)

  11. Visiting from "This or That". Great set of photos, but I just LOVE that you got such a great shot of a ladybug. That glimpse of red just MAKES that capture. Gorgeous.

  16. I've known One for long,
    One good observer and a good writer,
    Then One got engrossed with her critters,
    And One got good with them too.
    Later, the camera conquered One,
    And now, One became a poet too!
