I really enjoyed your poem Vie. I admire all things Egyptian and I would love to own a snake jewelery that wraps around the upper arm. I found a silver snake ring and I really enjoy wearing it. It reminds me of Egypt and Cleopatra. Outstanding poem I hope to see high on the winners list my friend. Blessings xxoo
