Ah, the day’s guidance … restrain from further cracking!
Who is that shiny beetle?
Ah, the limitation of words (especially with Haiku)! Actually, today, no guidance was involved or intended; it was written humorously, referring to getting more wrinkles on one’s face! That’s why the title is Wrinkles in Time Haiku. 🙂
Nice one Tom, I must start using a tripod ….or something for my ventures into macro!
🙂 I rarely use a tripod.
Thank you, DFS! 🙂 (No, not Department of Family Services!)
Love the neon colors, and your words of wisdom 😊
Thanks re the colors and see what i wrote to Jazz. No wisdom was intended. 🙂
Sometimes the best wisdom is unintended 🙂
Your haiku brought back our childhood superstition: “Step on a crack, break your mother’s back.” If that were true that beetle’s mother would be in serious trouble! (But I don’t think it’s true, so the beetle can keep on trucking and we can keep on admiring him.)
🙂 We, as kids, used to say, “Step on a crack, and a bear will break your back!” We, last fall, had the cracked sidewalk going along our house replaced with a nice, new one. So we are safe! 🙂
As always, great photo!
Thank you much, Mark! Those little buggers are fast! 🙂 (I told my wife, Marla, about your book and she said that she will get it as soon as her sciatica subsides; i usually only read science books these days.)
Thanks, Belinda! 🙂 They truly are fast little buggers!
I recognize that fellow!
I took a picture of a relative of his today. :0)
Nice shot, he’s a beauty!
beautiful words and photo, Thomas, have a nice day, regards Mitza
Sweet haiku! 🙂
