Pregnant Mantis (CTG)
The swifts are all a-twitter this morning,
high above sexting humanity; a one-legged
grasshopper and a brown pregnant
mantis lurk in the overgrown lavender.
It's two days until my late Mother Yoria's
ninety-first birthday... she hated the word
"pregnant"! A British specialist believed
she had MS, told her to have just one child.
A rabbit limps below the lavender, begins
to devour greens. A young couple strolls by,
their beagle straining at its leash
fails to disturb Br'er Rabbit's foraging.
The mantis readies to populate the world.

Confucius, he say...
Why this Mantis like dyslexic Dickens?
Both have Great Eggspectations.
