HAIKU in Response to One Deep Breath Prompt of 6-25-07

unlocking the door
the ants
have beat me home

This week's prompt at One Deep Breath is "bugs and creepy crawlies." I live in a three story walk up. Whenever it's the season for ants, I envision them hiking up all those flights! :-) Wishful thinking, of course, they just hitch rides on everyone else's stuff. We do the climbing. Humph!

Want to read about some other creepy crawlies? Visit One Deep Breath (link above) for others' take on this prompt. (BTW, the above haiku is cross-posted to Summer Haiku 2007. And the clipart is off one of those freebie sites with gazillions of graphics.)

I have a problem with ants, they love to hang out at my house. Your haiku depict them well.

I wrote about ants, too! We are in a severe drought and I know they have just come into to find water, but even so...
I like the picture, too!

Your ant picture is adorable! And I really like your haiku. It's amazing that they get up three floors, even hitching a ride. You'd think they'd settle for the first floor -- perhaps they like the view!

Good luck with your ants! I know it is a problem, but it makes for a nice poem.

Can't tell you how much I find those little warm weather ants annoying. I hate killing anything, but don't hesitate with them (or roaches). I was so embarrassed (spelling? :-D) the other day when a friend picked up her bag from near my terrace door and said "Uh, Patricia, ants...." Grrr.

Summer really does bring out the ants, doesn't it? Your haiku depicts that nicely!

I agree with polona, when ants are in the house it is not good. Usually that means exterminator time. I try to be nice and capture most bugs to release outside, but not ants. I use the bug spray. I read your comments. Glad we agree

They can be quite the pest in great numbers!

I can just see the ants go marching two by two in your haiku. Enjoyed it very much.
