A Snake in waiting.....

Go down

A Snake in waiting..... Empty A Snake in waiting.....

Post  Sue McDonald on Tue Jul 17 2012, 00:08

A timid grey mouse
ran as fast
as its little legs
could carry him

with his heart helping
to pump him along
the ground.....

through the tree like
blades of grass
over the mountains
of pebbles

heading for the
dark cavity in
the safety of the garden shed
he scurried
with his feet meeting
in the middle
of his pulsating body

as he entered the cavity
it seemed warmer and humid,
after his escape through cool air,
AS
he sat,
rested on his rear,
he peered out,
from his assumed saftey,
INTO the eyes of his would be attacker !
who sat
purring and poised !
in wait !

He sat,
his body pulsating in his eyes,
he saw darkness begin to surround him,
he saw the jaws,
of a previous attacker,
who had missed out,
CLOSE WITH TOTAL CONTENT !!!

A snake in wait,
was a dreadful fate,
for a short sighted mouse
who mistook him for his house !

oh..(sob) such a sad ending to our furry friend..
kinda reminds me of the frase.. 'outa the frying pan and into the fire'.
life certainly has it's perils, that's why we need our guardians..

enjoyed your story very much. xx Like a Star @ heaven
