bowing from the bank
straw colored grasses touch water –
snails emerge to feast

Thanks for your honesty in all parts of your blog; it makes reading your work really enjoyable. Like you, writing is my dream and connecting with other writers/readers feels so healthy. I’ll be happily following your work.
Thank you so much! That’s so nice of you!
While we no longer have any…your piece reminded me of our ‘pets’ and inspired this renga:
the goldfish ate them
the one we won from the fair
and his friends we bought
even in the floating grasses
the snails could not hide, from them
special flakes floated,
flitted confetti, down past
goldfish eating snails
Ha, the food chain in verse! Well done, Jules!
