Monday, April 16, 2012 the Water

Two notes, like a single heart beat, a glimpse,
A shadow, that uneasy feeling creeps
Into your stomach, the beat increases
Something brushes past bare legs and startles,
Too far from shore; just try to keep afloat.
The beat again, a tug, a gasp, shock, fear
Screaming will do no good, it's too late now.
No real comprehension of the nightmare
Unfolding beneath the surface, gasp, splash!
Then silence. Relax, it's just a movie.

April PAD prompt: "Something ____"  After running the possibilities through my head Something Wild, Something Boring... Something in the Dark... I remembered we had just watched "Jaws" recently, and found my inspiration.



  1. Never know where inspiration will come from, huh? LOL

  2. Excellent! That movie scared the begeezus out of me the first time, now I just laugh at the excellent special effects. Still don't swim in the ocean though...
