Slither on

Slither on little snake,

slither on.

I see you there crossing my path

with your sleek vibrant green body

mesmerizing

with your

shimmering red scales

along your tail.

Intimidating

with your perfectly formed sphinx pose

while sliding past

as your beady eyes glare my way.

Slither on little snake

there is nothing to see here

simply a girl

unable to sphinx quite as high as you.

There is no competition here,

slither on little snake,

slither on.

  1. You are right Jennifer, I did indeed see a poisonous snake on my hike. I may have done a little jump.

    Thanks Elsie.
