Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Great poem for the day! I have a snake that was my daughter’s, only she grew up and moved out and left it here! It’s a corn snake and they live a pretty long time. I didn’t know it was Snake Day, but today I cleaned his cage out, so he got to celebrate with clean litter! 🙂


    1. ha – I bet he was a happy snake.
      I owned a harmless ring neck when I was a child.
      I never really feared them until our neighbors found rattler babies in the backyard – “Umm kids let’s play in the front yard til you’re off to college.”


  2. Hisssss! I must be well versed in parseltongue!

    Love this one – though looking at that snake (if it were right in front of me) brings back Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom when he exclaims, “I hate snakes!” 🙂


  3. The closeup of the snake reminds me of friends who keep them who really shouldn’t. It’s a rare person who can take proper care of a snake, any kind. There is a lot of love… and a lot of feeding of mice. But there is also the handling, the loving communion, and a lot of owners totally miss that, just get off on the “wanting and getting” aspect of exotic pets.

    As for your poem… I love all the hissssssy talk. Your voice for the snake is quite what I’d imagine if I could hear its thoughts! Nicely done… Amy
