Geckos – hiding at my door!
Waiting for my opening door to say ‘Come in!”
Chirping – larger sound than life.
Gecko’s unity – they tolerate me in “their” home.
Ants – they seem to migrate!
First invisible and then in armies round some crumb.
Motion – it’s so erratic!
They move half-crazed with no apparent destiny in mind.
Lizards – they flaunt their right to space!
With first a stare and then a bob, that says you’re peons ‘neath my gaze.
Fluid – they move like lightening!
You’d think that rockets propelled them from their resting place.
Small things – occupying space!
Each one unique yet always shifting life when they’re embraced.
Distractions – can be seen as blessings.
Beings just need reason to live humbly sharing space.
