A picture is worth… well a paragraph at least!!
Look at this! There are leaves on the trees! Seems so long ago already…
So what does this make you think of?
What are the first words that pop into your head?
Let those words lead you… to something… have fun!!!!
Somewhere along the river
the fish eyes filter
through the darkness.
By now, this day and age,
their generation sees
A passer-by comments
on the empty cups, the straws,
the mustard foiled burger paper,
the brown murky water.
A child tightly seat-belted,
with a sliding lid cup of cheerios, sings
A tear streaks down
the face of a lone elderly woman
with the news of 5 Canadians
especially the father and son
who left a wife and daughter. She drops
her knitting and wavers
over to the white castled window
her children invested in
for a view of the river.
The fish slime hidden through the darkness.
A firefighter gets a tetanus shot
for nicking her arm with a knife
trying to cut free
a drowning jumper tangled
as they tried to save him
as he tried to die.
The dragon boat drummer
begins his rhythmic chant
slowly increasing the speed and intensity
for a taste of victory.
The baggers in the tent
by the shore lie still
as if never there
while footsteps of possible police
walk by and away. Somewhere
along the river
they can sleep another night.
The fish won’t breathe
The river look quiet, as the currant swept along it put a calmness into anyone who look at it, but how decieving it was.
The murky water was the perfect place for it. It could hunt with out it’s prey seeing it and it could hide if needed. But during the past years it’s prey was become harder to find. It was getting hungry, it would have to start to look for other food.
It never ever came up to the surface. It had no need. But with the food on the decrease it would have to the chance it and search. Through out the years in it’s home it would feel large vibration at the suface. When the next vibration came it would strike and take its prey to its home below.
