Grasshopper

by Iola Foxx


I once watched a grasshopper gnaw upon a single blade of summer grass underneath the searing noon sun. He sat and chewed, as if savoring the plant’s vitality. The wind rustled the grass, and for a fleeting moment, they were one.

Winter has fallen. That blade is now imprisoned in frost.

I miss the grasshopper.
