Pond life

 

 

Such lucidity is watched above the surface which water dwellers
Like icebergs are observed to float, to obscure the coloured darts
That mimics perfectly, creatures above with startling patterns
And aged learning’s to avoid capture and consumption.

 

Such kept abundance is by plan, played carefully with nature’s glance.
Tidiness in an absolute is not nature’s way; such things
Are measured and best left balanced.

 

Others glide on these surfaces with childlike attentions,
Divided in these capsular worlds, twined and presented as one.
A sold memory to keep bottled in thought, but for a while.
To the passing such things are precious and decidedly expected.
