It's In Its Nature.
Red and Black Friend of Jack.
It's in its Nature
By: Juliet Austin
In my garden grows beautiful flowers
amidst the rock's, and weed, and rose's
a sanctuary for nature.
The flat rocks once from riverbeds, now
the home for venomous snakes.
Be careful of its poisonous tongue,
it envies and strikes at the beauty all around.
If one is to venture close enough
it strikes without warning
spewing venom in its wake.
It's a beautiful creature, magnificent in its own right,
it's appeal the forked tongue and beautiful eyes
In my garden, you will find them
slithering across rocky grounds.
As they grow their skins do shed,
but one cannot approach these
venomous creatures; without a care.
As beautiful as they are they must be feared.
My Garden calls to the bird's, and butterflies
the lizard's and worm's, it's a bounty,
a refuge for stray cats and dogs.
The vapid, forked tongue of the
rattler leaves in its wake,
the evidence that nature needs balance
for to endure.
