in my meditation I found my mystical guardian and protector ... a slithering snake around me is an invisible circle and my snake is coiled at my feet always on guard until someone steps within my inner circle ~ I have trained my snake to slither to the intruder to depend me with a threatening display but, he is invisible to everyone but me ~ though I believe people sense danger coming for them I proved this to myself one day at dance class when three girls came to dance and were mean they wanted the space I was in and were pushing and bumping me so I whispered to my snake to take action ~ the music was playing and all were dancing but those girls were tripping and had a look of terror that is when I knew that I was a snake charmer ~ those girls ran out of class and were never seen again I bring my snake everywhere with me now most of the time he is just sleeping and quiet but if someone should come too close he will hiss and raise his head ... waiting for my instruction I speak to him 'in my mind' ... he understands ~I feel safe having this spiritual snake charm sometimes, I stroke his velvet skin and I think he purrs but he is ready ... at any moment .... to protect me_ _____________________ January 11, 2022 Poetry/Free Verse/My Spiritual Snake Copyright Protected, ID 01-1420-778-11 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Premier contest, The Snake Charmer sponsor, Kai Michael Neumann, Judged 02/04/2022 Fifth Place

I do think snakes have their own charm. One time I met a fellow who had a huge yellow boa constrictor that he offered for me to hold. He wrapped his snake around my neck and I could not believe how heavy she was. She was cold and very friendly for a snake. He had raised her from infancy. He told me as long as he keeps her fed he doesn’t have to worry. I was in my late teens and very impressed with her. I like the idea of your invisible snake protector. Constance. Charming indeed! Blessings xxoo
