Requiem For A Dying Wasp (First Haiku Attempt)


Hot summer day

alone

dying wasp.

 

Subtle breeze

ants march by

wasp in trouble.

 

Black and yellow

visitor with wings

comes to pay respect.

 

Tossing and turning

leaves in the way

running out of time.

 

Warm sun

on my upturned face

wasp in cool shadow.

 

Stick subtly placed

to help wasp roll

cannot stay upright.

 

Minutes seem like hours

falling of night

wasp no longer moving.
