Writing prompt – trail

Snail trail_Photo by Judy DarleyThis week’s prompt follows on from last week’s snail adventure. I frequently see snail trails like this one, where the snail has apparently looped-the-loop. They always stir my curiosity. Why would a ponderous, slow-paced mollusc backtrack like this? What purpose could this have, other than the snail wanting to check it isn’t being followed and hasn’t dropped something en-route?

Could something more whimsical or satirical be going on?

If you write or create something prompted by this, please send an email to judydarley(at)iCloud.com to let me know. With your permission, I’ll publish it on SkyLightRain.com.
