Carol A. Hand
A morning visitor, just my speed
for ample macro focusing time
A little slug looking for an early feed
as it secretes its trail of shimmering slime.
A little creature much maligned
I admit I’m guilty of this, it’s true.
I know I honestly wouldn’t mind
if you only ate weeds instead of feasting on my gardens, too.
This year I’ve tried something new
to help you know what’s not in bounds
I routinely circle my gardens to deter your crew
with carefully spread coffee grounds.
It seems to work for you and me
We’re able to coexist peacefully…
