low-flying pilot

navigator of frogs' tongues

- skimming the surface


Pat Trombly said...

"Waterbug" is about living one's life too fast and only on the surface. The depths are there even though we choose to avoid or ignore them. The waterbug's world is merely a reflection of itself - it doesn't plumb the depths. The frog has a deeper understanding having lived both in and above the depths, and the waterbug's life consists of avoiding being consumed by the frog.

I think this one would be great in a book of haiku for children. I can just see the crazy illustration!
