busy little ants

constructing empires of dirt

clouds loom unnoticed

  1. Hi!
    I like that this moves from little ants to huge clouds image-wise. Empires of dirt indeed.
    Oops, I think this haiku is reinforcing certain negative brainpans….

  2. *grin*

    Those damned clouds – sinister touch to a piece that would otherwise have been too pollyanna.

    Always the threat of rain to wash away the hard work…

    Good write.


  3. I dig Haikus…
    Constructing bridges to my favorite writers!!!

  4. ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    They might be small, but they are terrifying!

  5. love this,
