Don't even ask where this one came from, I awoke in the middle of the night from a sleep of the dead and wrote this on the back of some mail and went right back to sleep. I must have some weird dreams!! LOL

                   “SLUGS”


 


The very name denotes a negative connotation,


 One where we should be sickened or disgusted,


  One where we feel we must destroy it,                               ...or chase in away in someway   


                                              


 


 But, to really appreciate Nature in her fullest,


 We need to examine these creatures,


  We need to know what their function ,


                                                    …in the grand scheme.


 


  In a way, they are even pretty,


 Yes, pretty, with their many colored spots,


                                                  some big, some small,


 


 Much like people, as we are all creatures of Nature,


 All on this little bluish & greenish crystal ball in the universe.


 


               All participating in the game of life…

i thought, *ugh* when i first started to read...you know, the negative conotation...but you pulled this one off brilliantly with the ending

"...in a way, they are even pretty,
yes, pretty, with their many colored spots,
some big, some small,
much like people, as we are all creatures of nature,
all on this little bluish and greenish crystal ball in the universe.
all participating in the game of life..."

*BRAVO* applause--well done, my friend, well done!

(((HUGS))) and love,

karla. :) *keepin' "slugs" in my library*
