“Circled and Squared”

Time
moves in
slow circles
The brown snake coiled
Patiently waiting
For his dinner to move
The balance of life to match
The still sleeping prey unaware
that life’s harmony will be broken
The level of life’s tally soon returned…

  1. Well done, Anita. I love the wisdom of your words! Many of my neighbors have reported seeing rattlesnakes. Yikes! I’m careful walking the neighborhood. I figure we’re in their territory, so they need a little respect and a lot of social distancing. LOL. ❤
