Soaking up the sun

fierce heat beats down on the basking Lizard

he lies still soaking up each ray

Sleeping, warming his body for the day

Tongue flickering in and out tasting the air

Always alert, aware of whats happening

quickly darting in a wiggling movement

into the shaded cracks in the wall

until its safe to come out again,

stretching its brown scaly body

to have forty winks and soak up the sun.
