Mirror Poem Imagines Animals from Insects

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem was inspired by watching the insect world, which resembles the animal world in many ways.

Animal and Insect Comparison Poem

Worms, beetles and ants all have great qualities and can be very interesting, although it is usually from a collective intelligence built into their evolved genome.

They are anyway very valuable, as all life is precious in its own right, and they can be beneficial to humanity through the Earth we share.

Wander the World, Insects and Imagination

air safari
feeling barmy
looks like a lion
resembles a rhino
acts as if an anaconda

500 feet above animals, insects underneath by five

worm at one with world
beetle a battler
ant acts all organised
returning reality
grounded humanity
