#Maydays Prompts – Water Worlds

maydays-logo

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.

    Simply gorgeous – love the idea of the halo askew 🙂
