A Chance Encounter -for Charlotte's contest

Pavement dry and cracked, worn by time and traffic All those frantic people traveling from here to there And for many, rushing, but really going nowhere I saw the little fellow, a snail with his house on his back Starting to cross the massive divide, the black expanse No intellect to tell him this could be his very last dance I picked up my slimey friend and we quickly crossed the road And I gently placed him safely at the foot of a leafy tree This was not his time to go, coincidence had set him free
