BLOOD IVORY'S JAWS

From deep beneath, 
Murky waters flow,
Amidst currents depths
Divides.
Two eyes watch the waves,
Tides.
Primal fear grips mans basic,
Instinctual need to survive.
Hear the music echoing, 
And see the fin surfacing.
Predations unseen predator,
Glides at hells speed.
Natures gray phantom,
Feeding hungers unsatisfiable,
Carnal lust.
Perfections ultimate creation,
A killing machine, fueled by 
Poundage’s in take of flesh and 
Bone.
Camouflages deception masters,
Dwelling in hidden shallows, 
 Blacked realm.
Waiting ever aware, for deaths,
Calling, blood Ivory's crimson.
Jaws smile at unguarded preys,
Weakening moment to strike.
The hunters thus emerge,
 Leaving redresses chum field,
Behind in destruction’s wake.
Behold wreckage’s ruins, a harvest
Of humanities leavings, 
Left overs floating above.
Just when you thought it was safe,
To go back into the water?
Someone screams Shark, SHARK!!!

    cherl Such a chilling and eerie tale that would make anyone scared of going into the water. You captivate the reader with such imagery and description from the first word to the last. Thanks for the great and flattering comment on my Princess Jailed poem.

    I truly respect how elastic you make our language a d it's accompaning images Cheri. Nothing can be assumed when reading and feeling your visions and messages. 'Glides at Hells speed...' a pivotal expression. J.A.B.

    Howdy Cherl. I decided to read your first entry just so I can see how you've progressed. I thought that this poem was ummm... really, really good. I read it through several times, and in my mind, it was with a deep, narrrative voice. Starting calmly yet ominously. Then rising into a booming crescendo as it attacks. Only one problem though. The word "weaking". Did you mean "weakening"? Cause it kind of made me stumble when I read it. All in all though. I enjoyed this one a lot. Rockman :-)

    this was pretty good, even with free verse I prefer poetry with punctuation, to me it gives me a better sense of how the poet would say it. This had good visual imagery, enjoyed your work this morning Cheryl
