Hey Snail, what’s your story?
What made you show up at my house?
Do you have a message for me?
What can I tell from your attractive spiral shell?
Could it be that I am going in circles?
Am I going too slowly?
A snail’s pace is often an accusation of laziness.
But, what if, it’s a sign to slow down and rest?
You are a gentle creature who comes in peace.
Wherever you go, you are at home.
How do I know? Because you carry your home with you.
You make your own trail and travel at your own pace.
You bring a message of patience and I’m right on time.
No need to get caught up in the ways of harried humans.
I’ll take a clue from you and will not participate in the pressure.
What else may I glean from your visit? Ah, it’s time to pivot.
Look at potential dangers and what’s not working.
With a shell of safety and protection, explore a new direction.
You appeared to me so that I could see your mobility.
I stopped to observe and consider other possibilities.
I ask myself what are my undiscovered talents and abilities?
Speed is not the key to success.
Your colorful, spiral shell reminds me to cherish each season.
Life is fragile. I am here for a reason.
Thank you, Snail, for crossing my path when I have much to handle.
You showed me your mobile home, and how to survive alone.
There is a time to be still and a time to move, help me find my groove.
