the secret life of snails

FullSizeRender copy 4..

they may look
like slugs with shells,
…….but they breathe best in rain.

observe
the significant progress
of these tiny philosophers slowly pondering
……a blade,
the trajectory of breeze,
…………………the day.

    Oooh, this is excellent. Loved that you picked a snail for this one. >

  5. Snails do look like slugs with shells. Never thought about them being not what they seem. Great.

  6. What a life! But what a drag to carry that shell around. I suppose they are made for it 🙂
