Backyard Philosophy (Repost from 2012)

The cat swatted after the butterfly
Who in a panic to escape
Smacked into the window pane.

The mouse erupted in laughter
And soon was running
For his own preservation.

The ladybug held silently to a blade of grass
Smiling yet humble enough
To remain still.


  1. This is wonderful, Michael… especially, the ladybug holding onto that blade of grass! Certainly animates the idea the one thing leads to another. But the cat and the mouse and the ladybug all seem to be taking it in stride.
