Today’s #maydays prompt provide us a watery tale.
I dive in deep
It’s wet wet wet.
The shock of the cold
Forces me to suck in my breath.
Opening my eyes
I take in this wondrous watery world
Seeing a myriad of life
Happy in its liquid environment,
Oblivious to this intruder.
The red fish, yellow fish,
The striped and the elongated
Swim by giving me not a cursory glance
Even the beautiful angelfish
With halo slightly askew ignores
My presence in favour of its spiritual home.
A shark glides by majestic
The king of its domain
I’m too old and tough
For it to consider me any delicacy,
Far tastier fishy morsels on the menu.
I breech the surface, my lungs gasp
Another breath, this is where I belong
Away from this wondrous water world
Where I can marvel at what I have seen
Knowing I can visit another day.
