Serpent in Paradise

The bright gleam of a sunny day

The gloom of a dark demise

The green grass, a pink orchid

A serpent in paradise.

The shimmering blue of a hopeful ocean

A wrecked ship full of dead knights

The golden grains of holy sand

A serpent in paradise.

The red of a rose, the pale of an old man

The death of a rainbow butterfly

The blush of a candle, the pink of my love

A serpent in paradise.

i am a dazzled fan of your writing. would like to ask for your permit to hold a confabulation with you. be my guest with no compulsion if you like to...

i'll be highly indebted if you could post a rejoinder in regard of the aforementioned whim and i'll revisit this space for further deliberation over the matter.
ineffable grattitude expressed.
