Eidechse, Lizard, Lagarto

Bei letzter Sonne 
Noch wärmt sich die Eidechse
Vor Jagd auf die Beute

Rot färbten sich die Blätter
Dort wo der Wein gereift war


With the last sunshine
The lizard still warms himself 
Before hunting prey

The leaves changed colour to red
There where the grapes had matured


Con última luz 
El lagarto se calienta 
Antes da caza a presa 

Hojas cambiaron a rojo
Allí donde uvas maduraron

    Very cool image of the lizard sunning himself before going hunting. Alligators do the same thing on the banks of rivers here and that was what I was thinking about while reading this. Awesome poem about nature and natural instincts, Gert. Love, Carolyn

    I always love the imagery in your work, Gert. Always sharp and picturesque! Perfect picture to transport one on a cold day to a sunny one, sitting on the back porch watching the lizard warming himself on the fence! Hope you're doing fine! Always, Annalise
