Mantodea

Observe
the mantis.
A mystical,
quiet power
exudes from its emerald carapace
belying its reserved nature.
Always observing,
always waiting.
Though it may not overwhelm
with pure strength
or outmatch
with raw speed
it displays untold reserves
of patience.
It is this
that is the mantis’ strength
for it knows
all to well
that what belongs to the mantis
will come to the mantis
in due time.
All,
in due time.
