Sweet Box

Sitting with its tail
coiled round sweets in the box
a lizard

This brings both a smile (such a sight!) and a cringe (do I have to throw away the chocolates now? !) ... I love lizards. This one knows what's good. Wonderfully unexpected imagery.
Delightful. Lizards certainly do seem to have a miraculous talent for getting into places they aren't invited. More than once I've had to shoo one out of my living room. They are very beautiful though.
