Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

The perception of the things around us that we may not even be aware of.
Eyes of the Insects

Down on the ground,
We are crawling around,
Looking up in awe of your size,
We are trying not to make a sound,
Hiding in shadows, we were not found,
Out of the way is wise.

While I was flying inbound,
I was spotted by the hound,
He gave chase and I hitched a ride,
My grip was broken and I fell down,
Narrowly missing my crown,
I used the dog's limbs as a slide.

We are getting into all the nooks and crannies,
Finding all those hidden spaces to reproduce,
There are many more of us to introduce,
Especially in the homes of grannies!

I cannot resist this sugar candy,
It was like I had been seduced,
Now my annoyances have been reduced,
After I was trapped inside this bottle of brandy.

(Dante's variation)
