House Fly

My response to Carpe Diem #1756 Fly

For Carpe Diem’s 7th anniversary month we are celebrating small things in nature, and today we are inspired by Issa to write haiku about flies:

don’t be mean
to that horsefly

let him pass
like a mosquito, a fly…
solitary priest

thin legs–
while cooling myself appraised
by a horsefly

Issa (Tr. David G. Lanoue)
