Picayune: A Bug’s Life

blue bug 2 petrified forest april 14

Little blue bug

how cute are you

what is your purpose

is there something to do


Running around

on dead wood

always busy

sometimes misunderstood


Decomposition is your purpose

not picayune at all

helping to provide nourishment

when trees die and fall


Not intending to harm

stinging when somethings in the way

trying not to be swatted

on a summer day


Beautiful to some

beneficial to some crops

a bug’s life is full

not having time to stop
