As part of the weekly Ligo Haibun Challenge, my offering on this photo prompt:
Biting large mosquito.
Before my propensity to kill, I let this rapacious pest take its fill.
From the offering come serious discomforts.
My bite wound swells; it burns and itches intensely.
Cool gurgling stream water.
Home to small fish and tadpoles. Mother and baby raccoon pause to quench their thirst.
Fresh water supply.
In the still stagnant areas, female mosquito finds haven for her two hundred plus eggs.
From the small sucking predator to the life-giving water licking smoothly across my feet–
We are one. Nature’s food chain providers.
warm shots of red elixir
hot fish food supply
