Last night I watched a nature show on pbs It showed how the Bush people in "Australia according to their mythology, believe all snakes came from water to become many other things(Like us;-)
Herpatologists there doing a study on this found a python with teeth. The ugliest thing I ever saw a snake with teeth and looked like it could be a human face. It gave me the shivers, and I wrote this poem. The strange thing is I had written a story a couple months ago, some of you read, called Zar the Shapeshifter,about a man that shape shifted into a snake. Now that really shook me;-) lol !

It slithered out of the water
wove serpentine in the sand
when it came to a large boulder
it shape shifted and stood up as man
it felt an inordinate amount of power
looking all around beholding the land
It decided it must be the worlds master
To control all that he saw with his hands
Everything was lush with vibrant life
His master plan was  to start with a mate
Within a short time the world was in strife
The planet was confused full of hate
He tried slither back from where he came
But to his utter dismay it was too late
The toxic water soon cost him his fame
And the shark whose appetite he did sate

I happen to like snakes, Tiger Lily - the reptile kind. This sounds more like the Devil himself.

Excellent thought provoker you have written here, Eileen, but I am not a fan of snakes. They terrify me, especially if I am not expecting them! Well done; brava! (thanks for the prayers!)

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

Bad place this earth when a slimy snake doesn't want any part of it. Still, there is much merit to those words, Eileen. Very perceptive.

This is a good write, Eileen. But I freaked when I saw the picture. I'm one of those people who cannot even look at a photo of a snake. I can't look at them at all! I guess it's a phobia.

I didn't see that but sure wish I had.
This is a stark reminder that no matter how powerful we are (or think we are) there is always something or somebody with a bit more stealth and power than us.
I'm not fond of this gave me chills!
Good write Eileen!
