Of Grass and Twigs

The waters recede, the grass is revealed, reveling in happiness and sticks.twigs in the grass


No heart stopping now, I know better –

they simply look like snakes,





can’t fool me twice, you old rope!


Unless, of course, you really are a snake!



I am grateful to snakes,

who remind me to be mindful!
