Meeting with a Tiger snake

Meeting with a Tiger snake

The sky above is sheer perfection
The deepest shade of blue
The big gold sun, it shines on down
And lights on drops of dew
 To make them shine like pretty gems
Upon the soft green leaves
Of trees reflected in the lake
Such a poem this morning weaves.

A tiger snake comes swimming by
He swims amidst some gulls
In his special wiggly way
It’s a blessing to my soul
To see these creatures swim together
No danger written there
He’s at peace with all that live
It seems he has no care.

He swims up to the leafy shore
Then hides behind a tree
He knows I’m there yet, doesn’t care
He has no fear of me
But when I try to get up closer
The snake, he flares his head
So I must heed this danger sign
Or soon I could be dead.

Then snake, he moves off through the bush
And goes upon his way
He’ll find some other place to lie
On this lovely summer’s day
The day is coming soon enough
[The autumn is quite near]
When this snake will sleep in peace
Until the spring is here.

    A beautifully done poem and a great message...people should live their lives and let others live, in peace and that includes wildlife..

    All your poems on nature are beautifully descriptive, and it shows you are so much in sync with nature. that's a great place to be, isn't it? the peace and harmony you feel is so evident in your poems. this is another interesting write, Peter. cool work.

    This description is legendary,sinking in me as if I was there with you. The appreciation of this nature also delights,he gave you a warning and moved in another direction.Surely summer will come and every snake will enjoy the sun.I like this Peter.
