I'll write a poem every day, might be tiny but it'll be complete.


One exception perhaps: larvae

live in fast-moving streams

adults fly weakly

their emergence from

underwater rocks

is most unusual, the pupa

comes to the surface and explodes

catapulting her into the air


the wings are pre-expanded

though finely folded – she simply

flies away – they never lose their creases

see the adults' long slender legs

dangling into the water

along stream borders.

Day 26 Few of them are likely to attract attention

Enviable insects.
