Sentience

She fell flat… splat!
Silence but for the shriek of a circling vulture
Corps of ants investigate core of corpse –
In their wake, leave ruby snakelike trail.
A wisp of smoke signals her soul’s departure…
… and arrival.

Ant evolves, senses sentience;
resolves to make amends.
The world seems so much greater now.
No vultures can reach her here.
