snail revisited

Grifmo. Move a little faster. CC BY-NC-ND 2.0

Coiled tight around her beating heart
she ventures forward.

With the weight of all heavy on her back
she scribes the world in silver.

I have revisited this poem I am getting more minimalist. Nothing kills a poem quicker than weighing it down with too many words.

I am very thankful to the photographer. To me, this photo embodies the courage, beauty and artistry of the snail.

I am an educator, librarian, & researcher interested in how a transpersonal approach can transform communication and create connections even when we are in conflict. I also love snails -- little metaphors I use to remind myself to take some time to dwell on an idea, to revisit it, to circle around it, for as long as I need before I 'get' it.
