A supercilious gesture it seems :)
Makes me want to raise mine, Dalloway :)Nice photo, wishes, devika
When I read it, I say to myself: "She raises her flask to do what?" Is she toasting the ant? Is she going to pour water on the ant? Is she going to take a swig with a sort 'I have water and you don't' gesture?On the other hand, is she comparing the ant's struggles to the water hole with herself as she raises her flask?I *love* the picture. The small living things in life (bees, moths, ants) all seem to show up in your haiku. I think you have a soft spot for them. You notice them. Issa was like this.
By the way, the word I typed in for that last message was Milisith.What a pretty word, I thought to myself - a pretty name too.
I read it that you're just being helpful. Nice.Total coincidence that I was thinking ants on Sunday too, watching and driving dodgem cars.
Great contrast of how easy it is for some, how hard for others. I like the sense of you toasting the ant with your drink.
thanks for visiting and commenting!yes, I love watching insects, Patrick. And if Id never taken the photo I would not have noticed the pointed barbs on his back or the fine gold hair on his abdomen... I wish Id discovered haiku earlier...Harps, you were driving dodgem cars?
Cheers, Miss Ant! And here is my toast:May your fundament be goldenand your work shine.Bottoms up!Makes me smile after a long day, Dalloway.
this is unusual, the size of the ant, its struggle to the water; two surprisin elements in your haiga much lovegillena
I don't think I've seen one of these. Gold- strange.
