BENEATH THE WAVES

 

Someone watches me from the water.

A head bobs in the shallow waves.

Yellow eyes sparkle in the sunlight.

A man rises from the waves.

A man in a wet suit.

The yellow spots must have been

a reflection from the sun.

Ouch.

I’m shot.

He shot me with a spear gun.

Too late.

I’m falling.

Will I wake to find

it had been a bad dream?

I hope so.

A DAY AT THE BEACH

A day at the beach

So far from my reach.

I could smell the salt air

As it flows through my hair.

The white sand is so soft

As it holds me aloft.

I want to be there

Instead of my chair.

WATCHING ME

 
Who is watching me from the water?
Something is bobbing beneath the waves.
Is it a person?
It’s coming closer to shore.
Yellow eyes sparkling in the sunlight.
Green skin with yellow spots.
Music from “Jaws” in my head.
My over-active imagination.
I must run.
Before it catches me.
Wait!
A man is rising from the waves.
A man in a wet suit.
All is safe.
The yellow spots were only
reflections from the sun.
Ouch!
I’m shot!
He shot me.
He shot me with a spear gun.
Too late.
I’m falling down.
Will I wake up again?
Was this a bad dream?
I hope so.
