# 22

Thanks to Kerry, and IGWRT's plea that we all work towards a greener and cleaner Earth - this being World Earth Day, apparently- my quirky humour immediately took it the wrong way, and with the help of a wonderful photo by pk-photography.blogspot.com, it gave me the excuse to write a sad apology of a haiku...



Clean and Green, you say.
Perhaps, after a rainstorm,
a caterpillar?

  3. Bugs are high in protein. We should seriously consider eating bugs. There are so very many bugs, and their free for the eating. No one should ever go hungry in a land filled with bugs..

    1. Worms also. More protein per hectare of grassland in the worms than in cattle raised on the grass.

  4. It isn't sad, and it needs no apology.

  7. Oh, this is good. You could turn it into a Lune poem form for the RT Sunday Challenge (a haiku in 3-5-3 word count):

    clean and green
    after a night-long rainstorm
    a caterpillar survives

    or something like that ... smiles :)

    1. P.S. Didn't mean to rewrite your poem ... you just inspired me to write another Lune. I love your sense of humor :)

    2. Be my guest! Rewriting is fine by me, for it gives me another perspective - which has to be good.
      I've never heard of a Lune (apart from the French word) but will pop back to Toads and have a gander.

  10. Oh, good one, Jinksy! Loved the inchworm, too. Remember the song? ...Inchworm, inchworm, measuring the marigolds/You and your arithmetic, you'll probably go far/Inchworm, inchworm, measuring the marigolds/Seems to me you'd stop and see how beautiful they are.

    Your photo was lovely, and the poem had a sweet, benign little giggle attached. That's a perfect Earth Day combination, methinks. Amy
