Geometrid

Hidden in plain sight
A gray moth on gray tree bark
Waits for night to fall.

Shower

Gentle April rain
A lady beetle shelters
Between rose petals.

Polistes

Golden-legged wasp
Delicately climbs rose thorns
Dangerous beauty.

Pierid

One white pear blossom
Rises from the blooming bough
Spring’s first butterfly.

Stirrings

Hives begin to buzz
Anthills rise from sidewalk cracks
Cities wake for spring.

Phasmid

Camouflaged insect
Overlooked until it moves…
A stick spreads its wings.

Cricket

Frosty autumn night
The sound of chirping crickets
Creeps into the hearth.
