Ants Jun27 by Mark M. Redfearn in their busyness I lift my feet to miss them— ants crossing my path Advertisements Related Post navigation ← Pastry Slivers → 13 comments on “Ants” Christine Goodnough says: June 27, 2014 at 6:06 am Good for you. I’m sure they appreciate it as they go on their way. I admire these industrious creatures; they have so much work to accomplish. Just so they stay out of my kitchen! 🙂 Reply readinpleasure says: June 27, 2014 at 6:13 am Yes, so long as they stay out of my kitchen 🙂 Reply Ramesh Sood says: June 27, 2014 at 6:24 am Well.. you do it well..

Reply Cynthia says: June 27, 2014 at 7:30 am I’ve always wondered what they think when one of us giants cross their path! Reply Kim Mailhot says: June 27, 2014 at 7:53 am Busy little guys !

Redfearn says: June 28, 2014 at 3:32 am The ants were glad too, Rebecca, believe me! This scene really happened a couple of days ago, while I was hiking through Guadalupe Mountains National Park. I thought I’d memorialise the event in haiku. Glad you like it! On Fri, Jun 27, 2014 at 10:20 PM, Mark M. Redfearn wrote: > Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
