One day a rabbit boost on how fast he could run and laughed at the turtle being so slow.  The turtle challenged him to a race, taking it as a joke the proud rabbit took on the challenge.  The rabbit hopped off while the turtle slowly crawl,  half way through the rabbit got bored and decided to take a nap.  The dream was so sweet, the rabbit slept deeply while the turtle crawl passed him.  When the bunny wakes up this was already dark, he ran as fast as he could to the finish line and there the turtle was waiting for him.

Happy Easter Bunny!

While we are waiting for spring to get warmer, the cicadas are waiting for a hot summer night for 3 to as many as 17 years for some species.  On that specific night the cicadas nymphs will emerge from the ground, climb up a tree where they will molt, acquire a pair of wings, sing and find a partner.  After mating, the female cicadas will lay hundred of eggs, when they hatch, the young nymphs will dropped into the soil, live for years until that one hot summer night.

The Chinese believe that cicada is a symbol of immortality, the exuvia from molting drops to the ground and one night in summer they emerges again singing.

PURPLE by Ken Nordine

Purple,
all dignity, all pomp, all put on, has aura to be felt as well as seen.
Purple has class, some say the highest, they stand in awe in of purple, royally, loyally in awe.
This alone makes pompous purple king.
King purple views there is a right that is his, it goes way way back to the beginning,  to the place where pomp began, that is purple pomp.
Some says, those in the know, that purple got pomp from the first of the purple queens, from mother pomp, who thought it all up, the purple dignity, the purple pomp, the purple put on, thought it all up so anyone purple from then till now would never have to ever work.
And that’s why purple is king.
