when i was just a little bug

16 Jun

when i was just a little bug

the grass stood so high

i thought it touched the Sun

and the terror i felt when the jumping

began

and outstretched wings and

long spindly legs

i ran as quickly as i could

for safety behind the rocks

dark and cool and

far away from all i didn’t understand

but it was better early in the morning

clinging to the grass bland

sucking in the dew

and not a single grasshopper in sight

when i was just a little bug
