Out There

Checkered flag came down,
The crowd went wild shouting
-day at snail races.

How intriguing to think of sitting down to watch the snails race!

Deborah Godin said...

A snail race?! That's got to be a distraction in slo-mo - great stuff!

Haiku Tuna said...

ha ha, I love the plural of races, like there could be more than one in a day for a snail -- what an achievement!

Beth P. said...

you are so clever!

sort of like the mini-dach races they have here--a little faster, but no less distracting!

Thanks--

A wonderful thing to watch a snail race - it must be a lot like watching paint dry. Love this...

Patois said...

A long, drawn-out distraction that would be. Very fun.

Tammy said...

What a clever piece and some distraction!

Good Edward, you distracted me from enjoying the race I envisioned. Thank you.
