Yellow Shelled Snail
I see your struggles on the
Stone paved roadway. You
Stretch out to feel the stone
Edges and finding a smooth
Stone surface, you pull yourself
Forward just enough to advance.
I kneel down to visit with you and
Feel your struggle in my knees.
I cannot leave you there alone.
I pick you up. I carry you to
Foliage at the side of the road.
We both go on our way.
We have met
You and I.
