The water was
dark and brown,
two turtles rested on a nearby log
soaking in the sun.
A large grey heron swooped lazily down
while looking around for a tasty morsel treat.
Overhead a squawking jay served as sentinel
to warn of my intrusion into its domain.
All I wanted was to sit and dip a line
into the cool brown pool.
Perhaps an unsuspecting fish would seek
the dangling worm on the end of my line.
Even if there were no takers
I wouldn't mind.
It just was a chance to visit
the calm and quiet of that dark and cool
pool as it just drifted by.
Thoughts of nothingness clouded an
otherwise empty mind.
It was just a lazy day,
warm and friendly sitting by that
dark and brown pool
with a drifting line.
Cares drifted away
like the white fluffy clouds high above.
So why spoil a beautiful day.
