Animal Kingdom 45 – Black Snake: Inconscience


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 black snake.

Black Snake: Inconscience

Snake, my black snake,
How dare you blight
Again my aspiration-life
With your inconscience-night?
Are you a brute?
Are you an idiot?
Oh, I see; you are both.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
