Asp

Charmion's hand trembles
The snake is enticed to kill
Ptolemaic queen;
Asp slithers down her body
And in deep embrace they sleep.

Snakes are not one of my favorite reptile, but I surprise myself when a dog went after one and I pulled the dog away... I guess you can manage your fears when an emergency occurs.

You paint such a striking image with just 5 lines, Rajat. You have taken me far back in time when I studied Anthony & Cleopatra for my exam! ~ Regards // paul
