vanishing spell (viper evanesco)

cold blooded reptile

slithering quick

from dark to light

conjurer slick

rustling apparition

between grass and leaf

uncoiling with speed

security thief

viper evanesco

earth, wind, water, fire

elemental invocation

night to day

and day to night

see dark scaled incarnation

I call thee now

attend to me

vanishing snake

so mote it be!



Note: A repost spell to remove this snake that appeared yesterday 😉

We were doing a big spring clean on the weekend and this snake must have been disturbed by all the noise. Probably been there for months but we just didn’t see it. Pretty sure it’s a Coastal Carpet Python and it looks like it has eaten a big meal recently. We found it right near Edgar Allen Poe’s (the Chinese Silkie rooster) coop – eek!

Edgar is still alive 🙂

If you own birds you often get snakes. The snakes eat the rodents that eat the seed that the chickens eat (or something like that) 😡

Time to make the coops even more secure.

  1. wow. and aloha Gabrielle. as far as a snake goes, that one is a beauty. altho i’m not as keen on them living under foot as i once was. . . . that’s a great shot of it—you have some great photo-ops in your neck of the house. . . . yikes.

    vipers as i understand it are poisonous. pythons not being vipers are not poisonous. they simply catch and swallowed prey. i see you are distinguishing between the two with your note—so. . . . does a be-gone-viper spell work on a python??

    1. bwhahahahaha that is the trouble with a repost and general snake ignorance on my behalf – went over my head about the viper being poisonous (I may have known deep down somewhere in my brain – who knows – hahaha) – my original post was regarding a snake which I thought was poisonous – it was hard to identify – this one is definitely not poisonous but I forgot that vipers are poisonous – doh – thanks for the memory jog Rick 🙂 much appreciated (especially if I ever use this in a printed form). Anyhoo, the snake has disappeared so maybe a viper spell has a multi-purpose – hahaha – I’m sure it has just hidden a bit deeper in the bushes and is still lurking around – they are shy critters as a general rule.

      1. yeah. i had to check my memory on viper too. altho it just sounds poisonous to me for some reason. snakes at one time fascinated me a lot. well, they still do. i just don’t think i’m as quick as i once was so i avoid them now unless they catch me by surprise (lucky me—no snakes in Hawaii). i used to catch bull snakes as a kid until i was told rattle snakes live in the same places (yeah, i was that little, i was just doing what the big kids did—on my own because the big kids wouldn’t let me hold the bull snake they’d caught).

        i’m using your de-spell chant if i come across a snake then—viper or not. fun. aloha.
