Carpe Diem #877 Experiencing the Deep North; making the coolness; crawling out  and inspired by Hammish’s post: The Parade of Charades

worming their way through our thoughts
poisoning all they touch.

“Think as I think,” said a man,
“Or you are abominably wicked;
You are a toad.”
And after I had thought of it,
I said: “I will, then, be a toad.”

in the garden soil
unseen worms crawl
making it richer
