The Lizard

The lizard loves abandoned places.

They make for an exciting life,

so many nooks

and crannies

to seek out

for shelter

or snacks

from the creatures

ill-advised to shelter there.

There’s compost to scrabble through,

rustic brickwork to climb,

even a tightrope to practice balance.

And the sun

shining through it all

to be soaked up with joy.

Such a haven of perfection!
