any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
Love. I felt the hypnosis, feel the sway and the happiness. Magic.
nice...i would love to see one for real...the cobras are rather fearsome looking...ha....nice ref to the croc hunter too...used to love watching him and was sad when he was taken....though i bet several a snake charmer was taken by their love of animals as well...
I loved being reminded of cobras and how they sway to the music....cool!
I love how your poem is like a song...rather than fear it conveys a kind of magic and humour
Somehow it seems sa\fe, \as long as the Charmer has things under control...one hopes.
Cobras are infact avoid humans and mean no harm.
The description is so vivid, one feels we are actually present there.
Sumana,This has a lilt to the phrasing which adds a charm of its own. The scene is set...Eileen
Nice. I've never seen a cobra but imagine there's a hypnotic beauty about them.
Isn't it amazing how the snake charmer can create such magic and remove fears. Lovely, Sumana :)
now there's an image I've always known about India. thanks for this. it really entertained me. :)
Oh! I love those shows... Its a commonly seen show in India... Its aamazing... Beautiful poem...
Very lovely and quite rhythmic.
It is amazing how the snake can be made to sway and swerve in unison with the music! Nicely Sumana!Hank
oh, sumana it did bought back the childhood memories..very nice:)
Yes... your words sway and repeat their movement just like the been being played by the snake charmer. A lovely effect.And the most wonderful thing is that the tune has no effect whatsoever on the snakes... it is in accord with the movement of the been that they move.-HA
I would love to see one ~ I am sure to under the spell, smiles ~Grace
as a child I use to stand in the crowds to see this kind of snake showyour poem brought back the old world charm
Nice rhythm you set up; by the end of the poem I am mentally there, following along with my mind's eye the swinging of that hooded head.
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
