We are surrounded by snails. We see snails of all sizes on the paths after the rain.
We see large land snails, brought to Switzerland by the Romans, who liked to eat them (they're protected by law now). This one's shell is about 2 inches in diameter, and his foot is about 3 inches long.
And we see snails in the pond on our daily walks.
This poem is the result of my musings as I watched the pond snails like the one above.
Our host for Poetry Friday this week is Jan at Bookseed Studio. Mosey on over to find lots of wonderful poetry to linger over this week. Thank you Jan for hosting us!
Next week the round up party is here! The post will go live and ready for posting links at midnight UTC+1 time. I can't wait to see what poetic goodies you'll bring to the party!
