Animal Kingdom 44 – Red Snake

red-snake

Sri Chinmoy wrote a fascinating little compendium on the spiritual meaning of animals which was published by Agni Press in 1973. Today’s poem features the red snake.

Red Snake: Energy

Snake, my red snake,
I need your energy.
Even the Lord Shiva needs you
Around his divine neck.
Energy feeds the life of the universe.
Energy lost, life becomes
A painful farce.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
