Leaf for a Nest

Day 223

One leaf drifted close to the grass; a tiny claw snap it up by its stem. Snipping it vigorously, the blue luminous crab decided it would do. It’s color would hide her nest and its crinkly, papery body would not dissolve as quickly in water. Yes, the crab nodded. It was perfect.
