Jimmy Beetle
by Denice  Rochelle

there is a tiny beetle on this long, green bench
it shines and sparkles in the sun
sometimes it appears black
sometimes blue
it?s difficult to make out its true color

I watch as it spreads its wings to fly away
then moments later, folds them down to stay

its antennae curiously explore possibilities
its legs move hesitantly toward what it sees

I watch as it spreads its wings to fly away
then moments later, folds them down to stay

as you approach me on this long, green bench
you shine and sparkle in the sun
sometimes you are near
sometimes you are far
it?s difficult to make out where and what you are

I?ve watched you spread your wings to fly away
and fold them down again, to stay

then one evening,
I felt the chilling breeze of your wings
                          ...and I cried
