i see them

they feel


their way

back ‘home’


carrying things

i will not understand


moving in jagged lines

being exactly where they ought to


i didn’t feel

when one walked onto my palm


am i

on the hand of another being



feeling my way through time


how can I tell this ant

do you know what i call you?


i’ve named you

yet your essence unknown


do you know me?

have you memorized the creases of my skin?


i open a window in my head

the ant crawls in


i don’t know if it knows

i don’t know if i know


knowing isn’t our language

existing is enough

what comes to your mind when you think of ants?

  1. Intriguing and very visceral. Nicely done.

    1. Thank you so much 🙂

  2. When I think of ants I think of the insignificance of my being by comparison to existence and the universe.

    I think, this ant lives in such a compact space, but that space is as vast to them as California is to me, and I don’t travel as much as they do.

    I think that humanity isn’t necessarily that great if ants can feed their entire colony and not destroy themselves with politics.

    I think I never expected Woody Allen and Sylvester Stallone would be in the same movie together… And yet, ANTZ exists.

    1. Wow, you’ve given me a great perspective, world is full of wonders, isn’t it!

    1. Hi! Thanks so much for considering my blog, I’d love to, I have linked some posts here, you can pick which ever you think suits best. I also have some journaling promos that might help. I am on the hosted WordPress so you might not be able to reblog, but you can copy-paste and link to the post, that’ll be alright with me. Thanks for doing this!
