Green Bug on a Painted Fern

Poetry - Green bugGreen bug walking

along the purple rib

of a painted fern,

Are you talking

telling yourself a fib

with every turn?

“I’m safe here

hunting bugs alone

I have no fear

belief in birds is overblown.”

I do the same.

I feel your shame.

When caught in the clutch

You denied so much.

You have double spacing. Is that deliberate? I like the intro but I’m not sure you need the last 4 lines. Then they are rhyming and seem to break the pattern. Interesting.

Hey Tim, Thank you so much for your thoughts. Yes, I do like double spacing for a poem, I need time to think about the words when I read a poem and the space helps me not to rush to the next line. I think I could clump some of this, though, now you’ve got me thinking more about this. Also the last 4 lines are definitely a break with the rest because now I am comparing myself to him. And when one is caught unawares by something they thought innocuous it does break the pattern of your life. Boy, I do really appreciate your reading and thinking about my poem! What fun a blog is, eh?

Lovely picture
