A Tentative New Home

green lizard 6 april 4

Glancing around tentatively

with his deep blue eyes

searching for the flowers

beautiful place to survive


Spotting the plant

next to the porch

he quickly darts around

carrying a torch


Quickly turning green

trying to blend

oh the splendor

it’s a trend


A fly comes too close

he grabs it with his tongue

a fast lizard

he is young


Next to the water

in the gutter near the plant

rushing down the hill

turning to glance


Life is good

in this patio paradise

more flowers to explore

never thinking twice
