An Anole on a Bowl

Making dinner,

reaching for what i needed –

in kitchen and heart –

yet not paying attention to either –



in my hand


an anole on a bowl!

holding onto the tilted rim, frozen in surprise and fear –

the present moment became very dear…

no worries here –

you are NOT on the menu!
