The Autumn Snake

A snake
Sheds his old skin
Starting life fresh.

Green Plants

sun shines from above
to synthesize chlorophyll ...
green peas appear

my meal full of them
like herbivores and insects ...
sweet basil flavored

green snake hides
between the grass and creepers ...
bush rat approaches

Our Backyard


we have habitat
nor wire nor fence enclosing
open habitat

animals roam free
god ordained environment
clear blue sky to see

such the normal clime
since the snake spoke from the tree
since primeval time

man laboring hard
so slowly changed all that    but
not in our backyard
