any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
Lovely haiku Sumana ~ That's a deadly enchantment ~
ha. two summers ago i had a preying mantis that stayed on our porch...i guess he felt safe and i would go out and talk to him...and one day i found his shell...he had moulted and was gone...
aha!! i love the pun here...!
Really love your word play here, Sumana! And what a fascinating picture inspired it. Hope you are having a good weekend, Sumana.
What a wonderful pun, so evocative of the two different steps. In French we call them 'religious mantas'.
Yes she does!
they are fascinating...love your capture
A haiku that says so much Sumana. Very well done.
From pray to prey is just a small step for a mantis
when the Mantis gives thanks, another must pray for release :)
Wow! what a lovely composition. Pray and prey contrast
Clever haiku. I myself have been drawn to micropoetry lately. It is a fun challenge to say much with so little.
Good morning or evening in India i guess i should look up the difference..and in just three lines you have captured the dichotomy of what it just took me about a thousand words in reply to your last reply on my blog..We pray and prey..there is no escaping that...2 as human being..:)Yes the dark and light of prey and pray!Smiles and have a great day or night..They are the same to me and different now!
I believe you have caught the nature of her in relation to him. :-) It is a game ... :-)
Love your clever word play here! Or shall I say prey?? Thriller write here!
Wow! This is very clever and creative, Sumana.
Great haiku,short and sweet Sumana!Hank
Very pretty actually..love the choice of image.
Wonderful haiku. Love the doubles meaning of pray/prey.
In a helpful way - he dances through your words right into our hearts. Charming.
