Living free

Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Walls
Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday: Freedom

Upon my walls
they run free
keeping
my house
insect free
They have
their freedom
bother
no one
Behind the
pictures
on the walls
scouting for
insects
a mate
Beautifully named
Velvet Geckos
exist with me
Under the light
is one
I named
Keith
any insect who
drops to the
floor
is dinner
But upon
the walls
they run free.

Say hi to Keith

    1. So lovely. Keith now doesn’t run when I walk through the room, but still is watchful. Last night he was either going to fight another male or a female was trying to get his attention. It was funny to watch his stance but scurried away as he was out in the open ๐Ÿ˜‚

      1. I have been thinking of getting a few during the day or leaving the screen door open so the insects are attracted to the light where he spend a bit of time waiting…..

    1. I did have a bit of a game there didn’t I? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I have an seven legged Huntsman in the bathroom who I think was a victim of a Gecko.
      Velvet Gecko is a good name as they are so soft ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Waving back at Keith. You have to love critters that eat insects. We would have loved to have had some bats in our previous location so they could eat mosquitoes, but there was an opossum around our backyard in Illinois and they eat mosquitoes too. Here in Arizona we have a couple of small geckos in our backyard and I always enjoy spotting them.
