Snake haikus

SNAKE
A snake in the grass..
Without wings, or legs, or fins,
Where else would I be??

Like your upraised arm
My scaly snake’s head is raised
Why are you afraid?

Grass stalks gently sway
On a windless summer’s day
A snake is at play.

Legless, you may glide,
But with lidless, open eyes,
Snake, how do you sleep?
