A very well-written sonnet about the tiger beetle that can run do quick we often cannot see them run comparing to their size they are going lightning fast and cannot be caught if photographed easily.

This sonnet, Tiger Beetles, has the right set up and captures this speed demon long enough to allow this poetic description. Where'd it go?

That seems something of a design fault to run too fast. Your poem captures a quick glimpse of this speedy beetle's attributes in excellent sonnet form.

What an intriguing, fleet-footed beetle. I guess they would be hard to photograph if they were always racing around. I think I would just capitalize "Olympic" there in line 12. Nice share today.

Good evening, Dolly

This is a lovely sonnet, dedicated to this olympian runner; the Tiger Beetle'.

Loved these lines--

A jet propelled compulsion [close space] guaranteed . . .
olympic medalist, a connoisseur!

Alos enjoy looking at another of your water coloures.

kind regards

tracey

Dear Dolly, good artwork as usual, and this is the second poem today I've read about a crawling creature! (The other one, a few minutes ago, was about a caterpillar by Robyn Corum).

What are they chasing, other bugs. That just doesn't sound very nutritious. I have never seen one, but roches also run fast. By the time I find something to kill them they are long gone. Yuck. A most interesting poem. =] Rox

Sometimes, I will be damn if these poets do try to educate me.
Having said that, the poem does draw my curiosity and while well written it tells the reader about the Tiger Beetle.
I have never heard of a Tiger Beetle until this poem.
Always enjoy your writing Dolly's Poems. I also giving you an additional kudo for the art work.
Mary
