Haiku My Heart - Snake Eyes


three and one-half feet 
unbroken, winter coat shed -
It's Eve's temptation


Some may find this creepy,
but I see it as a beautiful work of nature.
Pure perfection. 
I know a black racer lives in my back yard
and he is welcome. 
I've seen him sunning himself in a bush.
I've also seen him try to get a baby mockingbird learning to fly,
but mom and dad bird defended their baby mightily
and Mr. Racer retreated.

I wonder if this is his winter coat
left behind for me to find?

Too bad I don't know any little boys
to give this unbroken treasure to.

Now I know where the term
"snake eyes"
comes from.

HAPPY WEEKEND

Judie,

I shared your photo with a colleague and we think this skin is likely of a black racer, a common, non-venomous snake in our area.  The color in the photos is typical of the cast skins of black racers.
