LOL… I wonder what they think when we are eating barbecued chicken?
it certainly makes you think – doesn’t it – thanks for reading 🙂
I have to admit that reading this haiku has made me hungry
I don’t know if hungry was what I was going for – but I appreciate your reading it and that it made you feel/think something – thanks 🙂
Poor little worms : (
Nice haiku. : )
thank you for your comments – I appreciate it 🙂
I think the word “fat” adds an edge of comedy to this haiku. A lovely short read.
and I thank you for reading!
Glad to see you in.
fat worms, so visual and tickling.
love your humor in Haiku.
Thank you – I appreciate all of your comments and support 🙂
1st moral of the story-don’t be fat!
2nd moral of the story-don’t be a worm!
Sorry, just joking, enjoyed your haiku very much.
I appreciate your finding morals – Thanks
I enjoyed reading this haiku, though I didn’t enjoy thinking about those poor worms!
Thanks for reading!
Oh my! It is all in the perspective, no? Love it!
Thank you very much
🙂 Lovely last line. Reminds me of the canny warmth of some of Sylvia Plath’s ‘mother’ poems – ‘sprats in a pickle jar’ and so on.
Thanks for sharing.
Wow – Thank you very much I appreciate it
thanks for reading- I appreciate it
I can feel the analogy to something bigger. I like this cause I can make it mean anything…
Thank you so much – I had the ideas of predation, victimization and helplessness in my head and this was one form they took 🙂
Lovely haiku, so cute =)
Thanks for reading – I really appreciate it.
If they would stop wiggling down there–the birds wouldn’t hear them! That’s the way of nature though, isn’t it. Loved this haiku.
Nature most certainly strikes a hard balance – but I guess it makes you think -looking at it from a different perspective give you fresh eyes. Thanks for your comment, I am grateful.
this made me smile! very nice haiku ;]
Thanks for reading – glad it made you smile!
#laugh, very cute.
Thanks – glad it made you laugh 😉
I have often thought about the “Robin” particularly as being predatory .
Not because of what he eats but for how they eye there prey before hand.
There is always someone who thinks as you do.
Love this haiku…looking forward to reading more of your work 🙂
I hope you’ll keep checking back to read again – I try to post everyday – Thanks
How fun! I have many of these friendly predators in my front yard.
Thanks! Too true – friendly predators – I like that
What a great spring haiku–I had to laugh when the full cast became clear. Thanks for sharing this one for the rally!
