Today I Saw An Alien!

Today I saw an alien!
It wasn’t very big,
It stopped my big feet in their tracks,
I almost ran & hid!

Dark red eyes and hairy legs,
Spikes upon its head,
Suddenly it flipped; back danced,
Lay motionless…or dead!

Had I scared it half to death?
Was this its last foray?
At once, it jumped the right way up,
And promptly flew away!

29th August 2019

I had a funny encounter a couple of days ago. I noticed a large fly acting strangely, close to the floor, where I was about to tread. Bending down to take a closer look, it kindly stood very still, as I managed to get a head-on shot. Photo shoot done, it suddenly flipped onto its back, spinning & doing its dying fly dance, finally coming to a brief halt, before jumping up, after its performance, and flying off! It didn’t even wait for me to say thank you!
