Snail

is a compact design combining organs
and habitat, as exquisite as functional!
The spiral of the shell is akin,
mathematically,
to the Milky Way Galaxy and
in our DNA .Legless, back home packed,
with a luscious tongue ,it manoeuvres its way,

with a silvery track across
thorns and thistles ,unscratched, sledging
up to mount Fiji. The intriguing placidity
from its slothful pace is truly very peaceful.
Our world where things are so fast
that only speed remains, is in need
of this calmness to pacify itself.

A difficult combination: a beautiful poem, and a scientific poem. Marianne Moore, who pioneered such poems, would be immensely pleased! As is this reader. Bravo!
