Katydid… (Multi-Photo)



You were 

green with envy

and those big, greedy eyes — of course — were

a large part of the reason why.

And those massive, attentive ears of yours,

upon your knees,

were nature’s way of letting you stand up to what you hear

about yourself.

When you passed by that radiant tile

and reflectively peered at yourself,

 you vainly realized

that you were

the most beautiful

Katy(that ever)did.


(Note: Katydids actually do have hearing mechanisms on their front leg — knee — areas; this affords their narrow bodies with wide, stereoscopic hearing.  This better, stereoscopic hearing aids greatly in locating prey and in evading predators.)

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the "tack icon" at the upper right corner... or, on my profile page, you can click on the "Thomas Peace" icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

  1. Love this! Amazing photo! Did you make the tile effect? It really goes well with your poem – which is so funny 🙂
