They provided us with delectable ideas
which our minds assimilated like gluttons.
We, of course, became hungry for more.
Our ravenous appetites drove us
to the next serving… and to the next.
One palatable idea after another
is what we craved; anything other
than facing the starvation of the
True intelligence can only, for a

sustenance breaks free beyond
their insipid inedibilities.
Will habit continue to feast on delicacies
of disorder? Even the supermarkets are
full of the artificial.
It’s good to eat healthy, whole,
It’s not so good to allow oneself
to be conditioned to merely
swallow a lot of mindless crap.
[Note: These are not the kind of eggs that you can purchase at the supermarket. These are 1 millimeter insect eggs on a leaf. Note the orderly patterns in which they were laid.]
That’s an amazon photo. They look little sherbet pips.
Thanks, M! 🙂
Or, as the computer programmers used to say (and still may say), “Garbage in, garbage out.” The photo’s so interesting — what is the singular little dried up globe at the left? Is that a different form of the eggs (perhaps an older one that dried up) or something else entirely? You may not know, of course: there are mysteries in this world.
It’s a dud, Linda! It won’t explode into life. 🙂
Great post, please check out my website
Thanks, TJ, i will! 🙂
Some great points about the “food” we are blindly eating. I like your picture too, very orderly insects just how I like them 🙂
Thank you, Michele!
Yes, all their ducks in a row! 🙂
Amen to your words – Ahhh to your image
Thanks, Jazz! Now you can finish eating your donut! 😉
Excellent poem and teeny egg photo. 🙂
Thanks, Scifi! Smaller than those eggs and we run into politician’s brains… 🙂
What an interesting pattern. The odd one on the left looks like an eye, as if it’s keeping watch on the little ones. 😊
The one on the left is a dud. It’s not keeping an eye on anything! 🙂
Aw, poor baby 😦 lol
Amazing shot….one looks like a tiny eyeball!
That one is a dud that won’t hatch; it was likely the first one laid.
Thank you! 🙂
“anything other than facing the starvation within” such a good, and true line, sadly
We seem to be eliminating more and more fiber (moral fiber) from our daily diets and choose to eat the ever popular processed food (lies and deceit) instead (no matter how spiritually, mentally, ethically or physically wrong it is). Nice pearly eggs by the way! 🙂
Yes, Kym. Thanks! 🙂
I do not eat processed foods except for a few things like cheese, yogurt, and natural cereal.
Looks amazing, the eggs’ pattern on the leaf. A bit it reminded me of the bees’ honeycomb cells, similarly orderly and… impressively beautiful! I wish I could take a photo of such a lovely pattern some time. 🙂
Many thanks, Nicole! 🙂
It was right on a leaf in our backyard and i nearly passed it by!
Amazing detail! Kudos for spotting these tiny eggs. Most people would have walked right past them!
Yes, Sabine, they are really easy to pass by! 🙂
Looks almost perfect on just one leaf, except for the “googly eye” that photo bombed your shot. 🙂
🙂 Googly eyes — large hungry ones — will be coming out on Halloween!
I’ll be looking forward to seeing them … large hungry ones … hmmm. Now you have piqued my interest.
What a a cool shot Tom !!
Thanks much, Bernie! 🙂 Very glad you liked it!
