Warmed Blood

Warmed Blood

Warmed Blood

She was aware of me
before I saw her next 
to the path carved in
to the hill beside the 
silent woodland pond 
coiled so peacefully to
receive the noontime 
sun onto the black of 
her scales painted with  
soft brown diamonds. 
 
A wonder that I saw
her there, that I didn’t
startle on inexplicably
seeing her a foot from
my feet. Her girth, her
length, belied her age
and I could feel within
me a stopping of time.
 
In this cosmic pause,
astonishing me, I felt
myself assess my path, 
my way — forward.
 
Studying this 
moment as she 
studied me with the 
black pearls of her 
steady gaze.
 
I spoke to her
softly, gently.
Telling her 
how very 
beautiful
she is.
 
I imagine she
rarely hears such
words spoken
by such as 
I am.
 
The pearls
gleamed.
 
She moved not
a single muscle
of her coiled
lounge.
 
And it came 
upon me that
should I proceed
along this narrow
bit of trail, stepping 
not a quarter of a foot
from her, she would 
have to move. 
 
Her posture said to
me that she was not
aroused by fear. And
as I felt into this, her,
I was aware of my own
non-arousal of fear.
 
Suddenly I knew 
with great clarity 
the way to proceed.
 
That to step forward
would disturb her
idyll in the now 
withering sun, 
an interruption
I could not sanction.
 
And though to get
to where I was seeking
to go, I’d have to retrace 
my steps and forgo the
rounding of this little
pond to meet the 
trail up farther,
I did so with
a stunning 
willingness
not to interfere
with her repose.
 
To not disturb
the peace of this 
wild place, this wild 
presence who shared 
a wild moment
of peace
with 
me.
 
And my
whole being
beamed as I made
my way truly
forward
now
 
into
the
wild
 
and
free.
