Earthworm Watch Day


I hadn't really assessed the damage

despite the squelch, suck and plop underfoot

until you said,"It must have rained."

But right enough, there they were

escaping environmental disaster

the flooding of their ecosystem

seeking out new mates and new territories

blindly sensing their trail

propelling themselves bellow like

risking fatal trod and overhead predator

Eco warriors on the move

enriching our lives.
