the ouroboros cannot be contained

Updated on August 8, 2011

the ouroboros cannot be contained

the snake

dancing rhythmic

to the vibration

that encompasses us all

we are taught

to fear the snake

because it tempted eve

to challenge authority


an authority that has slain

and passed itself off

as the creator of an energy

that can neither be created

or destroyed

and cannot be contained.

      Snake metaphor, which has many interpretations, was nicely done. I loved your poetry.
