Poem - Newt

Post  old Gray Mare on Wed Oct 27, 2010 2:56 pm

Spending my life
hiding from light, I was
born under water
holding tight to the
backside of a lily leaf.
I crawled out
to breathe the damp, tannin air
of a spongy
woodland floor, only
to retreat from the
light again, finding
haven under the decaying
corpse of a fallen elm.
Secure in my hiding place
until a curious boy
rolls away the log
and scoops me into
a plastic pail. Soon
my fate is sealed
in an air tight Mason Jar.

I love it!
Interesting idea, was it inspired by a grandchild perchance?

why I wrote newt

Post  old Gray Mare on Thu Oct 28, 2010 2:56 pm

some of my riding students and I found one under a old piece of wood. I first one I ever saw.

But the poem is also about being out of control and trapped after what seemed like a safe and secure life.
