5 Haiku Poems about Lizards - Green Anole

Updated on June 9, 2015

Green Anole Lizards Inspire

A few pictures, too few to be sure, inspired a bit of research into green anole lizards. They seem to be a rarity in my neck of the woods in Florida. In my 15 plus years of living here I have only seen them a handful of times. The second inspiration was this set of 5 haiku style poems. Like my other haiku inspired poetry you, the reader, can pick that haiku which you like the most. Just see the poll that follows the poetry.

Haiku #1 - Lizard Queen

The lizard queen

She scurries across the rail

Looking for the king


Haiku #2 - Long Tail

Long tail drags behind

White stripe painted over green

Anole Lizard Queen


Haiku # 3 - Wearing Bright Green

Wearing bright green skin

Anole lizard climbs the rail

Looks for the next meal


Haiku #4 - Thinks Procreation

Thinks procreation

Egg layer anole lizard

Hopes a male to find


Haiku #5 - Bug on Menu

Bug on the menu

Lizard snaps it out of air

chomp - swallow - eaten
