Legs and wings flailing
the crane fly hovers spasticly
in my air space.
Its erratic flight pattern
causes me turbulence.

Where poetry and nature collide...this tanka was inspired by Michelle Heidenrich Barnes' fun Monthly Challenge at Today's Little Ditty and Tucson's recent invasion of the crane fly.
