A tranquil retreat--
on glassy water diamonds shine
birds, katydids, frogs sing
"Gucci" the alligator lurks
"Mr. Turtle" paddles doggy-style.
He finds a target, this angry wasp
and in a split second
lands on fresh, juicy skin
Tears are a waterfall,
peace becomes lost in chaos.

Sometimes it happens just like that.
The sting of a wasp CAN be just awful!
what a transformation,
Reminds me of my brother when we were kids... insisted he could step on a bee without being stung, then stepped and got stung by another on his way to the one he was talking about.
Love the image of a wasp on lush juicy skin :)
Oh wow Laurie I love this one, the imagery is so vivid
lovely reminders of childhood experiences.
what a fitting gem,
adorable! loved it!
