Writing Prompt! – Falling In.


When they hit the freezing water their senses awoke to just how cold it was,

The shudder ran through them as they gasped in surprise

Looking down from the bridge it appeared so inviting

And leaning over for a closer look was all it took,

Snap! Then: “Oh! No! I can’t believe I’m about to hit the pool.”

Spluttering they looked at each other and surveyed how far it was to shore

They had no change of clothing so it would be a cold trip home.

Muttering as to their stupidity, they waded ashore,

The bridge stood beside them, unmoved, unrepentant,

But inside they were sure it was laughing at them.

    Thank you, Michael, for reminding me what it’s like to walk home drenched to the skin cos I’d fallen the water. And it was February (which across the marshes blows cold)
