Idealismus in the Life of the Snail

the snail on the mirror
cannot say what the other
is nor can it explain
its presence in the glass

it can say though
what the other seems
to be and from that
it can spin a phantasy
around this other
snail's life

from the myth
we imagine
another world
where real snails
crawl beneath
fallen leaves
on the solid
ground of His garden
of ideal forms
and bodiless souls
