Morning Delight

They move towards each other
Slowly
Timidly
Carefully

They reach for each other
Tentatively
Patiently
Inevitably

They explore each other
Gently
Sensuously
Delicately

They mate in silence
Inexorably
Tenderly
Thoroughly

An ordinary miracle
Snails mate in the sunshine
Despite their baggage

      Glad to surprise you. I do that every once in a while, don’t I? Nature at work and play, what can I say? I just happened to catch them on the tail end of their mating dance and I was struck by the sensuality of it, ergo the piece.

    I’ve seen close-up video of snails mating, and it is sensual. By the way, did you know that left-handed snails can’t mate with right-handed snails?
