Texas Sidewalks



Four-inch lizards
bask in a sun-induced trance
on Texas sidewalks

I was drawn in by the title. No lizards here in the great white north...relish it! Enjoyed this poem.

I used to live in northern New England, and have never gotten used to some of the critters here in Texas. Thanks for reading and commenting! :)

Thanks for commenting, Gowthani and Jingle! The lizards in our area are pretty small and usually run and hide quickly. We see them for a few seconds when we step out the door. :)

I miss watching the lizards drenched in sunlight, they always looked so contented. I live in a cold climate now so its a lovely reminder
