Lizard Love

March 30, 2018 — Leave a comment

There appears to be an abundance of lizards around our property. We see them every day. Sadly some of them sneak into the house and are met by one or all of my five cats who relish the challenge of a snack in motion.

Sad, because the lizards help eliminate little spiders and other tiny insects that can be a bug bear so to speak. I just like watching them out in the sun, soaking up some UV with their fleshy orange colored throat fans throbbing in and out like little lungs, which is their cute way of trying to attract a mate, which answers my original query. When it’s hot and sunny and they’re in heat (so to speak) they make other little geckos. Cool life in a hot climate.

Fool Moon

A fool

With an iPhone,

Is delusional

If he imagines,

A snap of the moon with a minuscule shutter,

Will capture the enormity of this

Striking ornament.

It won’t, of course,

But it lets God know

I care.

And if I hadn’t seen her glow

We’d never have existed.

 

Good Evening

4.50 pm Florida 

Shadows stretching

Sunlight waning 

Commuters tweeting

Cops waiting

It’s a sorry State

Of affairs

A place that spends more time

In light 

Than darkness
