Ode to a Venus Fly Trap

Recommended Posts

Hi all.  First time back since 2019!  Lockdown took a lot out of me, but I still have my outside bogs and a Nepenthes hanging up in the window (which I have succcessfully propagated and given to a friend).  But here's a little something I wrote a couple of weeks ago, just popped into my head. 😁

Ode to a Venus Fly Trap

My leaves are green, my mouth is red

I wait in patience to be fed

I have no eyes to see the sky

No ears to hear the humming fly

But insect of my scent beware

For should you trip my trigger hair

My jaws will close with silent snap

And you will struggle in my trap

For I’m the arthropod consumer

Dionaea Muscipula
