A katydid has a passport to eternity,
a jumping-off point above
the dimming stars.
Katydid | Long-horned Grasshopper
A landscape in search of a map,
a little dynamo drinks from a leaf
with no address.
Sandhill Cranes still trying to outrun time,
bringing tales from lost wetlands.
Sandhill Crane | Grus canadensis
A dancing bee throws off enough sparks
to scatter clouds.
Honey bee | Apis mellifera
Living in the kinky hour, a grasshopper
is home schooled in wild illusions.
