                                     stick bug
                                     its camouflage useless
                                     on a white wall
                                     like my love
                                     clear and open
Moonbathing, winter 2011

A very nice haiga, Adelaide. Probably a colour blind stick bug?...

Adelaide said...

Probably was, Frank. I never would have seen it if it were on a tree and not on the side of the house. Thanks for stopping by.

And the first 3 lines make a nice haiku Lines 1 & 3 with an added jux (maybe derived from lines 4 & 5, could work, too.

But I like it as is.

Thanks Bill. Maybe I'll write a couple of versions of this.

Very nice. Like your stick bug tanka w/photo!!

We've got a lot of these "walkingsticks" at our place. Found one on the side of our house a few weeks ago and, coincidentally, wrote a tanka about it.

Good blog! (Am spending a few minutes perusing blogs this morning.)

Hi Janet,

Happy to have a new viewer of my blog. I'll be on the lookout for your tanka in journals and will check out your blog.
