serpent hides behind pearl walls
ready to strike
serpent knows much guile
and even lies
serpent even composes poetry
and hisses whispered songs
serpent knows when to be silent
when a meal comes close.
forging a path less travelled
yet full to the brim of surprise!
To the ending of all Earthly journeying
I will lift my glass...while there is still time
and I will drink deep of that sobering toast
-to the eternal parting of all ways known.
hands reach in and serve;
to feed, to heal, to teach.
hands to caress, to soothe
bring to attention
to show the way, to wave
hello, and goodbye.
keen is loves ambition
small remembrance, now and then
is all love asks
glitches, stitches ,misunderstandings
this is where we meet
forgiven and set free
small inconveniences, physical hurts
a helping hand, clenched fist
arms open wide.
