Three Glances At One Mollusk - Poem by Yen Cress

Small and quiet
A snail slowly glides
Up this leaf

Rose petal
For a common snail-
Grand banquet!

Eyes on stalks-
Body just a foot-
Snails are strange!

    These calcified glances slide so slowly across the page its easy to look back and ponder... nature at its best! Thanks again Yen (Report)Reply
