Lizard Dreams

Lizard puffed up in the grass
tried to look like a snake
On the rock, he stood still
-“freeze and they won’t see me”-
until we got too close
Then, he resembled a twig
in the strong wind
as he whizzed away
Survival looks many ways
when you’re small
Still, you can always grow a new tail
a new appendage of healing
Lizard dreams while sunning
while sunning on a nice warm, flat rock
