Spring Bugs

things have warmed up the sun shining more often

grasses turned rich lush green and winter wet surfaces have

dried out a special type of bug comes out now in droves all over

Ohio in noisy large groups or individually un-muffled rumbling

roaring buzzing bubbling everywhere different sizes from

huge to small with metal shells all having either one or two

humps on their backs two wings flutter underneath in circular motion

needing asphalt or cement roads to help propel them forward at

slow or high speeds we’ve dubbed them Sun Cycles because

they only seem to drive out with the sun

(Get it?)


Reality Check


Heavy snowfall predicted

for tonight, tomorrow

that means Snow-Day but

walked by the window

an hour ago

sun shining

depressing me

just now checked again

high clouds but brightly lit

how can I say it precisely?

Glowingly gloomy

Predictions and reality

don’t always coincide
