City Crawler

Early morning, city street,
Glancing down around my feet,
There, as if upon a trail,
Sat a tiny little snail.

How he got there, I don’t know;
Snails and cities just don’t go.
Still, somehow, he made his crawl
Smack inside an urban sprawl.

Though I thought to move him to
A safer place to see him through,
I opted not to interfere
With fate, which must have brought him here.

Either he’ll survive or not;
I believe he has a shot,
Though New Yorkers, I’ll admit,
Don’t like creatures slow as _ _ it!

    It is a wonder how they get under inside a city street. You never know who's going to show or who your going to meet. Imagination travels far into a mistic world. Hey, you try and rhyme that. :)

    Your advice is best Ilene. I learned that the hard way when I saved a drowning bee in the gym pool. He was doing great crawling away, drying his wings off when out the door comes some members and stepped on him. My daughter said "well at least he had a quick death" and I agreed. I enjoyed your poem very much.

    I have one on my bedroom wall the wind must have blown in around two weeks ago. It just sits there day in day out. I'm fascinated at how it manages to grow on its own-some. I enjoyed your poem, Ilene. :)
