Haiku + Senryu

Haiku is a seasonal, reverent celebration of a subject (nature or people) trying to make a feeling.
Senryu tends to have a victim and may be humorous or irreverant trying to make a point.
- paraphrased from Michael Dylan Welch's Graceguts

This is the largest stick insect I have ever seen.
The inside curtain folds acted a great backing contrast for photographing him.
(He was about 2 hand lengths)

An earthed living stick
I will me vision'ry lives
As a grasshopper

Grasshopper Totems - grasshoppers are innovators and visionaries in spiritual symbolism
Stick Insects - are relatives of grasshoppers

Amazing photo of the stick insect we get them large over here. I liked the backdrop to your Haiku - very nice indeed on all counts.

Do grasshoppers have wisdom that we lack? Probably...
