My Word of the Month poem for October

Hi everyone,

Sorry to be so slow. It’s hard to write on horseback. Here’s my October offering.

Night Lights

Blinker on,

Blinker off.

It’s growing late.

He needs a mate.

Blinker on,

Blinker off.

In the night,

A welcome light.

Blinker on,

Blinker off.

A come-hither flicker.

He’s blinking quicker.

Blinker on,

Blinker off.

He has no clue.

If he only knew.

Blinker on,

Blinker off.

He’ll be a treat

She means to eat.

Blinker on,

Blinker off.

Too soon too late,

He learns his fate.

Blinker on,

Blinker off….

    • Good morning, Linda. I’m glad you like this little saga of female firefly chicanery. Sometimes a female of one specie lures males of a different specie by sending out false “come hither” signals.
