red moon elevates levels of a blue-gray ocean with its pull
lizards eat meat from their bodies as they outgrow skin
ants move eggs deep as it freezes near the top of the earth
hoping for borrowed time and their instars to be birthed

(Due to the hot winter weather last year, the yellow-jackets never died from last year, making them a real danger to many people) I took this photo in October after a professional came to treat the nest whose inhabitants had bitten a person in our neighborhood eight times. Stinging insects like wasp and yellow-jackets let out a pheromone when they sting, which tells other members of their hives to come and sting the individual in the same area.)

Looks like a tale of survival Joni. Amazing how we all just try to make it through. Hugs. Allan 🤗🤗
So true Allan. Thank you for reading and your comment. Hugs to you and your family. ❤️🤗 Joni
It’s a lovely one, Joni. Have to maintain a balance. Sometimes man has to step in when nature fumbles. Congratulations. 🙂
Thank you so much Terveen I really appreciate you and your comment. You are right some times it can literally boil down to a human life or an insect. Luckily the man didn’t have to go to the hospital but it was bad. Have a truly blessed evening and great big hugs of appreciation. ❤️🤗🦋Joni
The wheel turns, the seasons change, and life goes on.
So true Tim. Thank you for reading and I appreciate how wonderfully supportive you always are to me. I don’t take your time for granted, it means a lot to me. So glad we met. Big hugs to you and your family Tim. Love ❤️ Joni
The piece was beautiful dear. And the footnote gave me chills, it was informative as well. I did not know that. lOve and sunshine. 🙂
A beautiful write on nature and imbalance, Joni. Congratulations on this publication! You deserve it.
Nature has a volatile undertone. It amazes me that how much it is also in harmony. The Maker has His majestic power to make that possible.
Thank you Cassa you are so right. Everything has its own function and it’s own balance. Indeed our Maker does make that happen. Thank you so much for reading Cassa. Loved your comment too. Sending much love. ❤️🤗🦋🥰

Sweet Joni, what a kind thing to say about me encouraging you, I always gave honest feedback to you when you trusted me enough to read your books, I feel very honored, but in all reality, your talent has always been inside of you & it was your destiny to share your stories & poems, for that I am grateful. You are using a gift God gave to you to help others, & yourself too, as writing brings you joy. You remain such a special friend to me, & I am so thankful for you. Love you bunches!!
Dearest Janette thank you for the other night first of all my dear friend. I miss you so much and am so glad both you and Mark are doing well. Thank you for these kind words, only you could write something so very sweet about me as you have known me, worked with me, ridden swings with me and you have known me for over two decades. You are always there when I need you and you too remain a blessed friend and a hopeful spirit as the strongest woman God has ever put in my path to date. I love you Janette, thank you for your gift of kind words.
