A slug of movement meanders slowly, yellow-striped
caterpillar crossing the sidewalk, shuffles across
depressions as ravines in the asphalt, more like walking on
the moon, furry body desperate for shade, a tree's shadow,
anything to escape the sun in hot pursuit.

My wife, Esther and I really enjoy writing. It is an excellent salve, in addition to prayers, a great wife and family during my continuing recovery from a stroke/aneurysm. You can contact us at: email@example.com re comments on our work. We live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Pray for others.
