HAIKU: Response to One Deep Breath Prompt of 9-23-07



wide open door
the fly suicides in my orange juice



The prompt this week at One Deep Breath is "juicy." This two line haiku was prompted by the juicy end to a last fly of summer. It was a bit frustrating (probably a bit more for the fly :-D) as I did keep trying to shoo it out the dang door! Then when I noticed I was no longer being annoyed by its dive bombing and buzzing, I discovered why.

Be sure to visit One Deep Breath (link above) and check the comments, which have links to the rich variety of responses to this prompt.

lol! poor fly. though since i've moved to the south, i don't have much sympathy for the over-inflated bug population here! :-)

Oh, yes, greggo, I'm not overly fond of bugs myself. I will never forget my introduction to what they call a mosquito in the caribbean islands ... more like a dive bomber. And those nasty little "no-seeums" that can eat you alive if you get caught in the rain on the beach there. LOL!

Suicidal fly!
They can be immensely silly (and annoying).

Ha! Oh my gosh what a hoot. Well done. The black flies up in the UP are pretty nasty too. They think we're juicy!

Sometimes they get greedy...

A great fun, this one. I can just see it dive bombing your juice. Here's hoping you discovered it before taking another sip!

flies can be hard to influence to live well. I took one out of a store last night. It came out riding on my elbow. It seemed resistant to be smuggled out in my purse, the not quite dozy thing.
