cell phone photo black snake by lolamouse
Your scent is divine
Come closer
I need to see you

Your black tongue speaks lies
Smooth talker
You're not what you seem

I find snakes to be very attractive creatures from a safe distance.

Scarlet said...

I am scared to coming close to snakes ~ Yes, be careful of those smooth words ~

Great shot of that black snake ~ Your lunes are wonderful to read ~ Thanks for participating in RT Sunday Challenge ~

The black snake is not good news, is it? I seem to remember there always being one just outside the hairdresser's and a warning notice up.
Good subject for a small bite of poetry.

Definitely been there on number two--number one is my fave...just the right phrasing--really neat, LM.

Around here (southern MD) at least, black snakes are helpful. They eat mice and other snakes, including copperheads, which are venomous.

What draws us close, what repels. Your short verse got them both!

Whoa, that surprised me, Ms Mouse. I'd have thought a mouse wouldn't get that close to a snake!
You did a great job of this prompt. I was all over the page with it, I'm afraid.

Yowza, I dated a few snakes in my time. Then I married a snake charmer... and I was the captive snake myself. So I slithered out of that constrictive skin to escape!

Lola, in a handful of words, you managed to convey so much. Artful and honest. Amy

I love the slithering attraction of the first lune and the wisdom in the second. Well done.
