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. Alice Shortcake says:

    We need a bug-hance for this pic.

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

  5. I just now noticed that my gecko friend is leecking his own eyeball. :)

  6. Remember the Geico ad with the Geico gecko talking to a real gecko, who licks its own eyeball? :lol:

  7. Uhhh… wait, what?? :)

  8. O HAI GUISE!!! :D

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

  10. Gordon Gekko, for sure.

  12. sabrina rose says:

    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!)

  13. Beautiful!

    Miss Piggy to Ms.Kermit
    Life wish is complete.

  15. 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.

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

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

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

  19. The Original Jane says:

    Yaaay! My favorite color!

  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
