On the ‘cadaver'!

    Hard hitting write about a poor dead fly being dissected by the ever busy ants, great Haiku! (Report) Reply

    And so we will be treated in our graves, everywhere there is a cycle. (Report) Reply

    Your poem reminds me of the haunting animal imagery of Ted Hughes. The poem surprises the reader with its ferocity. (Report) Reply

    To observe carefully the ways of nature and write about them in few words is a remarkable ability. (Report) Reply

    A fly being dead and ants being alive and active, two entities bind together nature's way for a poet to craft a nice Haiku on. That's creative poetry. X (Report) Reply
