blue-green leafhopper
your striking appearance belies
the devastation
from sucking the life juice of plants
skedaddle, you plant vampire

bee on kale blossom

Honeybee,

the smell of sweet alyssum
slips through the open window
as your golden striped pantaloons|
gather the nectar and pollen
of late summer flowers.
Your buzz, buzz, buzz fills
the morning air.
I sip green tea flavored
with the honey from your hive.
I wonder how to bring an end
to the pesticides that threaten you.

scape moth
in the flowering meadow
fern-like antennae
translucent wings, a gold collar
looks deceive; a bitter meal
