A green search

spring’s first green –
a grasshopper searches
for the chameleon

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. You too! Given the word green many writers find the death and violence in it. I think its a rebellion against Green suddenly describing everything people sell.

    You Haiku, Economical, amazing and true. Often as a kid I watched the insect ecology from a safe place on the grass. Love it!

    • Possibly, the meaning of green might usually be taken as jealosy or envy when it comes to emotions, and those emotions tend to divert to death. It’s quite normal.
      Me, I find nature in green. Hence I wrote this πŸ™‚ Glad you liked my haiku, Susan!

  2. Do those eyes belong to the grasshopper or the chameleon? I love Mr. Boysen’s pics (I went to his site), and you have complemented this with a fun haiku

    • Difficult to say, Loredana. But his eyes might be better than ours right? πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ Thanks and a good afternoon and week ahead to you.
      – Leo.

    • You return a thought with your thought, Charles. I’ll be thinking on this all day now πŸ˜€ Glad you liked it. Cheers. πŸ™‚
      – Leo.

    • Thank you, Christine. The photo is one that attracted me a while back, and I had written another poem for it too. Cheers. πŸ™‚
      – Leo.
