i want to

carry my

house on my

hermit crab

picking my

way over sharp



to always

be at home

    Hermit crabs are fascinating. So many life lessons to be found on the seashore. I think you may appreciate this passage from one of my all time favourite books http://www.spiritsite.com/writing/annlin/part3.shtml

  3. Must be my cancer star sign but I too loved this. Beautiful expression. Almost made me think of writing a follow-on. Almost I add quckly before you push me πŸ˜€ Still, maybe ….

    That’s nice & all. But right now I’d rather be a bird that flies south for the winter – LOL πŸ˜‰

  5. If only moving house was that easy. Or maybe we carry too much stuff around with us and a nice empty shell is what we need to keep things moving nicely along. Happy New Year Melody.

      Ha! Trust you to put a twist on things. Interesting thoughts – I am uncomfortably aware of the baggage I have been carrying, and am in the difficult phase of housecleaning these days, so I sure get where you’re coming from. Hmmm. Maybe we need a sequel crab…. πŸ˜‰

    There is something very sweet and prayerful about this! Thank you, Melody!
