A Chameleon's identity crisis....

A Chameleon,  taking a break from slithering around, in the leafy environs of Bandra, a suburb of Western Mumbai.  Blogger friend Magiceye, posted this photograph , of a chameleon, ( "surveying his kingdom" as he says), as part of his Mumbai Daily: Camera Critters series . 

And it occurs to some, that this little fellow can look so regal, while some other folks known to us, can change colors all they want, throw weight around, and yet , they still fall short....

Life for him
is a many splendoured,
many colored  thing.....
As he slithers
in an out
beyond the leaves;
a scratchy brown
in the muddy base of a tree,
and then again,
a cool dark
doing a
resting on the bark.

He inhales,
and looks up,
what surrounds him.

And sees a world
full of
not only change colors
to suit the occasion,
they even change
what surrounds them
destroying the green
and the brown
and the flowing blue...

And he wonders
why he is called a chameleon....
