Contemplation of a beetle

Mesmerized by winging colors

Persistent nature starvation

Engrosses observers in tiny insects

Orange striped, lemon dotted

Or diaphonous near-neon green

Summer’s waning hours entice

Intriguing courtyard visitors

Unworthy of “real world” notice

Unless, startling, on skin they alight

Months devoid of wild-life

Symbolic connection to unfettered world

Each miniscule creature enthralls

Poised with miraculous wonder
