STORY OF HUNGARY CATERPILLARS
in my backyard

the feeding frenzy again
day and night

striped caterpillars
chomping through
the Plumerias

❧✿❧

tubular bellies filling

of leaves green
and flowers white

and after a while
there's none in sight
leaves, flowers, caterpillars

  1. ravenous beasts these can be - as you say, can strip and outstrip and outshine in merely less than a full day .... such as it is, everything must feed and well, I suspect, feast or famine? which will win .... clearly, you've turned a rather unpleasant to the eye and plant owner/beholder situation and added some depth and humour to it - which, really, is the only thing to be done.

    Fun poem Gillena

  2. Caterpillars - ravenous creatures. Hungry hungry caterpillars. And these buggers will bite you too as well. But, all creatures have to eat. I give them their space and hopefully, they will respect mine.

  4. I can just feel their fear of starving and I almost cheer for them upon finding food on which the can chomp.
    A fun read, Gillena.

  5. Those hungry caterpillars are a nuisance, I could almost hear them crunching through your poem, Gillena, but think of the butterflies they will become!

    1. The thing about these. I never see a chrysalis. I suspect they continue life underground. Butterfly? Moth? Beetle?
