You look like you live in a world that’s upside down
Everything is turned on its head
Nothing is the right way up
It must be dizzying
Living a topsy-turvy existence
Where you can’t tell reality from illusion
And so many others are delusional about their senses and beings

Deep and upside down thoughts. 🙃 Great photo!
Cute little fellow on the flower…a grasshopper, I think??? And the clouds, wow! Blues, greens, purples, grays, perhaps a hint of lemon.
Yep, Tim, it’s a topsy-turvy world, filled with confused people.
Thanks, KT. It’s a praying mantis talking to us.
Thanks for setting me straight. I’ve never seen a praying mantis up so close and personal.
Now you’ve met on face to face. I love paying mantis they are fun.
Delusional indeed… but how fortunate that you are in this world. Thank you for the beauty and hope.
Thanks, Marina. You you in on the other side of the world to offer sense and balance.
What a funny little guy 😍
Thanks, rockbabylove. She’s kind is funny and fun to play with.
Absolutely spot on. Great work and pic Timothy.
Thanks, Shey. A wise mantis for sure.
Reblogged this on The Reluctant Poet.
Hope you are having a great week!
Always a pleasure to read and share your posts with followers, My Friend!! Have a great day!
Is that a praying mantis? What an amazing photo!
Thanks, Nancy. It’s a praying mantis. She’s quite a character.
He’s head over heels in love with “Brown Eyes”! Such a beautiful photo Timothy!
She’s a cutie for sure. Thanks, Holly.
I love the mantis! That is a beautiful composition, Tim. Your cloudscapes are masterpieces, a collaboration between you and Mother Nature.
Thanks, Lavinia. I was playing with the mantis. She was a character.
Cool shot! We have a mantis in our garden that I’ve named Killer. I encourage it to eat all the icky bugs.
They are good critter killers for sure. Thanks, Teri.
Telling illusion from reality is easy if pain is involved. If it hurts, it’s real.
Lots of pain is imagined. Thanks, Catxman.
Finally! Someone from my perspective!😏
It takes a mantis. Thanks, Tiffany.
ok well you summed that up just right and the proof is in the pics❣️❣️
Thanks, Cindy. The mantis knows.
I enjoyed your poem, Timothy. It reminded me of a chapter from Enid Blyton’s Faraway Tree book series. The land of topsy turvey, where everything was upside down and the people walked on their hands.
It sounds like fun stories. I don’t know the series. Thanks, Roberta.
What a funny photo! Love the poem too. ;D
Thanks, PBS. Do you know the song Loki is referring to by Little Eva? If not look up Locomotion.
Hmm… I didn’t know that!! I’ll go check that out on YouTube (:
Let me know what you think of it.
As a male, I have a definite aversion to these prayers – well, specifically the females ha!
They do have a tendency to eat their mates. I love playing with mantis. They have a lot of personality as insects go. Thanks, Brian.

‘Tis one wise grasshopper!
Neat shot and words, Tim!
Kung Fu was the wise Grasshoppa. This is a wise Praying Mantis. Thanks, Resa.
I was going to ask, but thought just once I had a shot of showing off my Entomology knowledge.
Looks like it’s Enotmology for me! lol
You were not the first to mistake her for a graahopper. If you are not used to seeing praying manti, it only makes since to call it a grasshopper.
I actually thought it should be a bit greener, but I figured, a New Mexico type hopper!
…. and that cloudflower!
Never give up!
