5 Haiku Poems about Lizards - Green Anole

Green Anole Lizards Inspire

A few pictures, too few to be sure, inspired a bit of research into green anole lizards. They seem to be a rarity in my neck of the woods in Florida. In my 15 plus years of living here I have only seen them a handful of times. The second inspiration was this set of 5 haiku style poems. Like my other haiku inspired poetry you, the reader, can pick that haiku which you like the most. Just see the poll that follows the poetry.
