Snakesssss on a page

I am a huge admirer of snakes and just found out that yesterday was World Snake Day! While everyday is snake appreciation day in my book, I thought I’d re-blog this concrete poem of a camouflaged shifty serpent. Hope you enjoy !

Snakesssss on a page (now in camouflage colors!)

In celebration of World Snake Day, I have colored my concrete snake poem in camouflaged shades of a shifty sidewinder. After you are finished deciphering its text, I leave you with links to two other talented poets whose tongues have touched on the subject of serpents. Enjoy!

D.H. Lawrence’s “Snake”

    That’s wonderful, Tyler. I do love your concrete poems 🙂 I am also a huge fan of snakes. We regularly get to see carpet pythons in our neck of the woods. I will have to send you some photos.. they are magnificent and fascinating creatures.

  2. Thanks for three serpent soliloquies worthy of the waves they each etch across pages separated only by time.
