Poem with an explanation: the scarecrow falls down

earthquake tremors start
rain falls on an autumn day
the scarecrow falls down

 

This poem is about a person with low blood sugar.  Their blood sugar has dropped dangerously low.

As this happens, the person starts to shake (earthquake tremors start) and they start to sweat (rain falls), even though they feel cool (on an autumn day).  Their condition worsens, and they collapse (the scarecrow falls down).

This poem is a 5-7-5 haiku.

Above is a photograph of a black and orange bug on a citrus leaf.  It can inspire poetry.  Here is a poem inspired by it:

As he ate,
his leafy greens,
he thought,
of sugar.
