A Phoenix Soul

Flightless Hermit-bird
                 A Phoenix Soul
 
A mile of sheer grit crawl searching for a new home
Under the scorching blinding sun alone you roam
 
Calmly shell sizing at times decisive and bullying
A loving hermit crab a gift of life you are carrying
 
Predators at any misstep yet focused on the goal to share your phoenix soul
Fated to a castoff empty shell refuge along the wide sun beaten shoal

I saw a hermit crab for the first time a short time ago. They sure are fun to watch.

It’s a wonder how they size up their new home. And make sure there is enough room for growth.

Thanks Robert.
