the advantages of snails

a snail on our window
escaping from the rain
with translucent antennae 
backlit and aglow

the slow dart
of that sluggish 
tapered foot

they are much warred upon
these softly creatures
and their infamous slime

but with no hands 
and just one foot
at least it's hard
to be inept.

    1. I am feeling rather one footed myself with the writing business at the moment. Maybe all the stuff I sneezed out with the damn cold was creativity. Anyway, very grateful to Fandango’s One Word prompts to keep me dreaming up something each evening.
