Spring and sharks

Spring and Sharks. 
 
It is spring nature is green and there are many 
variations of verdant, fluffy, shining to sober
 olive, with emerald and jade in between.
Yellow is not in to day except for the sun that
shines and rain which is clear as laughter of joy.
Yet I think of lemon sharks that reside in 
the Caribbean Sea, they live in shallow water 
give birth to little ones; sharks can be avoided 
by not swimming in their sea.

There was a knock on my door, a man nicely 
dressed, tried to sell me insurance, something
to do with paying for my funeral. 
But spring is here and my thoughts are not 
morbid. He left me with a brochure of the price 
of coffins and the cost of flowers….
It is raining now, gentle rain good for potatoes 
and beans, sharks belong to the sea and should
not going around knocking on people´s doors.
