Feeding #midnighthaiku

Curiosity explores the ancient places seeking nourishment

I’m not a fan of slugs,  not as a rule, fascinating though they are. This one though caught my eye with its markings….and the fact that this particular ‘Breakfast in Slug Town’ was on the carved cross at Capel Non….a reminder, perhaps that the spiritual quest is one undertaken by all… and is part of every moment.

  1. I’m definitely not a fan of slugs. They aren’t a problem around here, but they were a big problem in New York. Yet, for all that, I have become increasingly aware that every creature, however icky I find them, has a place and a right to exist. And, maybe, even a lesson to teach us. Even slugs.

      Yes… I agree with you there, marilyn. Slugs are one of Nature’s clean-up artists and perfectly designed for their job. Which involves being ooutside and not nder my bare feet, please.

  2. Ugh, hard to not despise these creatures but I must agree, this one is interesting and like none I have come across in my own garden before. Great haiku to accompany the pic Sue. 🙂

    I cannot pretend to like them, they eat too many of my plants for that…

    I don’t care for slugs based on what they do to my hosta plants, but there’s something fascinating about the way they look and their movements nonetheless.
    Love the haiku with the pic. Nicely done!
