within reach

There

They were

Floating high

In the night air

Worlds I sought to touch

Sometimes, seeming so close

That all I needed to do

Was to stretch as far as I could

And if I closed my eyes while reaching

I could pull myself up to where they were

Drain the Snake

In response to Colleen Chesebro’s #photoprompt this Tanka Tuesday, I submit this Shadorma.  FOLLOW Colleen to stay in the loop of her weekly challenges.

Here is the photo we had to work with:

To control

Serpent tendencies

I sit here

Play music

To hypnotize the wicked

Risking my own life
