garter snake

the cat brought a friend to breakfast,

or perhaps for breakfast…

so i sat down to join them…

the cat, perhaps sensing my peacekeeping nature, fled.

so i sat with the snake instead

who raised a scaled head and eyed me with concern….

i don’t eat snakes, i said assuringly.


the cement on the patio

was warm.

and thus we stayed together…


and peace reigned.
