the new gecko

the marbled geckos
have come to stay

I’ve seen one
far away up the back
of the block
where the wood rounds
lie waiting for the axe
and me

and I’ve seen another
close by the house
so I guess this is home
it seems the geckos
would like to stay

    • Gotta love the lizards (and geckos)! They’re great critters to have around.

      I’m sorry you don’t have them there. An observer like yourself would have a ball with them, I’m sure.
