Friday Haiku: Green

Tiny green creatures
creepin’ and crawlin’ all day
In their own green world





A highly commended in the Wildlife in the Garden category by Martin Snelson



  1. What are we looking at in #2?

  2. An itty-bitty bug hiding behind a thorn.

  3. Love the smiley little gecko-y guy in second-to-last picture.

  4. Who said “Green is good”?
    I think it was a gecko.
    I can’t remember…..

    Wow! I love photos like these. These teeny tiny creatures are so incredible, I love getting a glimpse of their world. Makes me think before I spray my roses. (But then, if they eat my roses, that’s another dilemma!)

  7. Beautiful!

    Miss Piggy to Ms.Kermit
    Life wish is complete.

  9. I just now noticed that my gecko friend is leecking his own eyeball. 🙂

  10. You can edit Verlaine’s “Green” to an almost-haiku.

    Voici des fruits, des fleurs,
    Des feuilles et des branches
    Et puis voici mon coeur
    Qui ne bat que pour vous.

  11. I have a new rule:
    Licking your eyeball is cute,
    Said the green gecko.

  12. Easy being green;
    It’s the colour of Spring, and
    What I want to be.

    We need a bug-hance for this pic.

  14. The Original Jane says:

    Yaaay! My favorite color!

  15. Gordon Gekko, for sure.

  16. O HAI GUISE!!! 😀

  17. Remember the Geico ad with the Geico gecko talking to a real gecko, who licks its own eyeball? 😆

  18. Ne le déchirez pas avec vos deux mains blanches
    Et qu’à vos yeux si beaux l’humble présent soit doux. 😀

  19. Uhhh… wait, what?? 🙂

  20. You sure the first one isn’t a bunch of birds in the hand?
    (you know, “fool me once…”)

  21. The very def of non-traditional Qte.

  22. we just need a green tarantula to complete the picture
