Before after came
it took some time to remember
which, of course, came before
now was ever formulated
Supposedly, depending on circumstances,
once upon a time
was reading this
before the story’s ending was
like a grin without a face
or a tear without an “I”
as what was up
Note: Buffalo Treehopper… The eye is not a double-exposure; that is how the eye and eye edge actually look.
Beautiful photo and I love the verse. It sure beats, once upon a time. Before after came is my new/old favorite story beginning/ending…
Thank you, Victoria! 🙂 Maybe if people understood time better, they would act with more responsibility and order… maybe not.
Love the verse! That’s an interesting critter. I’ve never seen one. 😊
Thanks much, Dorinda! I’ve seen them a number of times before but they are very elusive. They tend to see you way before you see them and they almost always turn to the far side of the branch that they are on, such that you will not see anything. They have superb vision; maybe those dual eye-slits help even more with stereoscopic vision.
I’d love to be able to see that way…imagine what you could see coming before it hits you!!
As soon as I read “a grin without a face” I was smiling myself — at my memory of the Cheshire Cat. And tree hoppers are new to me. I know leaf hoppers, but they’re not quite as fancy as this one.
Ah, yes, the Cheshire Cat! 🙂 I’ll have a Scarlet and Blue Leafhopper coming up soon in one of my postings; it is just amazingly beautiful!
wonderful words and photo, Thomas, have a nice weekend, hope Marla is okay, greets to Tweetie, too. Mitza
Thank you much, Mitza! 🙂 Marla is doing better some, after the botox shots in her neck for dystonia. Soon we go to the surgeon to see if surgery on her lower back will be possible.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend too!
Great photo and poem! Everything is relative.
Thank you, Eilene! 🙂
Well, maybe not everything.
I like how you did the verse Tom – boy is this little critter bright green or what!
These guys are very elusive, usually seeing you way before you see them, while turning to the opposite side of the branch such that they will be out of your view. 🙂
Yup, being that bright green, they gotta hide from view, as they stick out like a sore thumb! 🙂
Tom, I have an unrelated link to share – I know you like fossils and a blogger I follow posted this about dinosaurs and their footprints. I know you will find it fascinating (sorry to post here and feel free to delete this post after you read it: https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/66982946/posts/1963297904
Thanks! It looks like it would be a neat place to visit! 🙂
I thought so too Tom and you being interested in fossils and dinosaurs would enjoy seeing actual dinosaur prints.
Very nice! 😊
