Franciscan


Hello, lizard.
Hello, my baby.
Whatcha doin’ on my doormat?
Watching me through the sliding door?
Yes?
Isn’t it a lovely day?
Isn’t it nice being a lizard?
[he cocks his lizard head]
I bet it is.
I love you, little guy.
Yes, I do.
[he steps closer on lizardy feet]
You are so cute.
Thanks for coming to see me.
[a bit closer]
Is it fun being a lizard?
Yes?
[off he scurries]
Bye, little lizard.
Have a nice lizard day.

Saint Francis wasn’t magic.
He was holy.
Like all of us.
The Creation understood him,
Another creature.
