Choice #midnighthaiku

snails clustered in a fissure in a standing stone

Embrace life or flee

Choosing anonymity

Hidden by the herd


Against constriction

Rebels and vagabonds stray

Seeking their heart’s path


A choice made freely

Dissenting or conforming

Holds fast in its strength

snail on ivy leaves
