The Rescue

d’Verse Poets Pub – Quadrille # 137: Throwing Poem Stones
Duck! De Jackson has us throwing stones at each other.

The Rescue

I rescued a katydid from the pool this morning,
laying it gently on the deck, hoping it will dry
out, crawl away. Rain is in the forecast,
so I move it to a stone under a broad leaf.
I hope it’s a lucky stone.

  1. The kind of rescue that rarely makes headlines but that is so precious. I’ve gone out to rescue worms in the heavy rain, carrying them to higher ground, a time or two.
