drunk on fallen fruit
the wasp buzzes happily –
into the dog’s mouth

Poor dog 😦
Lovely images as ever 🙂

Free snack, maybe 😉
HAHAHAHA! Yeah, but I wonder if the dog is happy about it?
Teehee! I have decided he is, but I may be the only one who thinks so… 🙂
There’s an expression we have in these parts for someone in a miserable mood – a face like ‘a bulldog chewing a wasp’. Don’t know how this translates to your neck of the woods, but the thought came to mind!
Hahahaha! I’ve clearly bitten off more than I can chew here…
Bulldogs aside, the loose plan was that the dog would, in the way that dogs do, swallow the snack immediately without investigating. The wasp would have been so shocked to have been swallowed that it forgot to sting and everything turned out swimmingly. Howzat?
You’ve got to love a happy ending! Not so sure about the poor wasp though!
Oh goodness, you couldn’t have found a better photo to accompany this poem! And why is it that dogs feel they have to try to make flying insects a snack? Ah, well, at least the wasp was in a state of bliss beforehand. Well done, Rachael!
Thank you, Miranda. I was lucky with that photo! Happy wasp, happy dog? 🙂
I’ve written a haiku about a meteor. Shall be interested in what you think, given your amazing knowledge about astronomy.
I can’t wait to read it, Rachael!
