Instead of just writing about the walk I took last night, I decided to write a couple (or three) haikus, inspired by a fellow naturalist and blogger (Patricia Lichen)! I was at work in the entrance station with my notebook so this is what I came up with:
Heat waves shimmering,
Animals still and quiet:
The sun is setting,
Light falling on swarms of bugs;
A light breeze begins.
I walk the creek;
A startled skunk lifts her tail
and I hold my breath!
I also came up wtih: Even a swarm of bugs can be pretty in the right light! I wish I had my camera...I'm walking again tonight so I'll try to remember it!
