prince little blue


shine shine little blue
bright your scales

slow blink
the day
is passing

your daddy owns
the drain
is in the woodpile

shine bright
little blue
warm now
are your dark stripes

you prince
of broken bricks
bake now
upon their ridge-lines

a rubble mountain
to recline on with pride
could be your domain

shine bright
small blue

shine shine

  2. I didn’t see the photo at first, but knew it was about a lizard. Immediately recalled a lizard here in TX, not native, but an undocumented alien ☺ from Vietnam that has a beautiful electrical blue stripe.
    Excellent as always, Frank.
