Now That Spring Is Here...

For One Single Impression Prompt: Warmth

Buggie 2 Little mosquito,
Gouge as much blood as you can
-go, then it's my turn!


FlowersWhen I was sobbing,
What I would not have given
-for just one warm smile

I loved that mosquito one so much! And the second one..well..sometime I wish for that even now!

These are both so different! I wonder what you mean by 'then it's your turn'.

SandyCarlson said...

I pity the mosquito!

I too have longed for the warmth you describe in the second poem.

Thanks for these.

Raven said...

Well done! I especially like the second, but the first one made me laugh.

Pam said...

Great mosquito haiku. Lots of humor.

I feel that second one very deeply.

(As an aside, when I landed on your page through Mr. Linky, it was at "Lasting Impression." My reaction was: that's not warm, that's cold!)
