This is in response to today’s daily prompt.
Along the coast you could notice the tiny tidbits of wonders darting about the clear sky. I often wondered if anyone else could see them. Everyone seems to be about their own business, laughing and playing with the sand and water. I, on the other hand focus on the tiny little creatures that have stolen my imagination.
It reminds me of P.T Flea in the 1994 Disney movie, A bug’s life. That’s the movie that made me see potential in writing about insects. Before then, I have been a keen observer of tiny creatures, mostly ants.
They are awesome creatures, you could make them go to war, you could even make them move their nest. Back then, those where my favourite past time adventure. Apart from whispering my ideas back to myself, or sitting before the “teli” seeing another episode of adventures of Sam or teletubbies or starship troopers, I watch ants.
Curious creatures, they appear to be very organised, they have an ant for everything; scavenging, storage, care, feeding, defence, building. Awesome beings.
It makes me wonder if this luminescent flying beings that whiz and dart about this clear coastal air have such system…
They are beautiful to look at. Often, I try to catch them in full view, but most times, they appear at the edge of my sight. I see them with my peripheral vision. And if I turn to look, they dissolve into the view…..luminescent flying beings, the tiny flies that whiz around.
