Summer-time Battle

The water swirled 
and then was still
a calm appeared; 
but below was frantic .

Lurking in the deep,
cold , dark underneath
was a large and ferocious
striped beast.

Again the water churned
and the small darted away
seeking a shelter; an escape
from the striped’s feast.

A line was thrown 
under a bow drooping low
a popping of the line
as it came slowly toward 
the one so anxious for a feast.

With the sudden rush 
a violent storm appeared
without so much of a warning
the line grew taunt
amid an explosion of sound and fury.

Mighty was the noise 
and fearsome yet the fight
as a warrior and his adversary 
fought to see if the other would give flight.

Then as quick as it began
it was over in a flash
the water was stilled
the noise drifted away
and calm returned in the midst of a summer day.
