|Ophelia by Odilion Redon|
Such silence, she thought
as the large Koi brushed past her shoulder.
So peaceful, so far away
from the everyday chaos her life had become.
The bubbles floated
and broke the surface of the water
disturbing the blueness of the sky above.
She glance sideways
to see if he was watching.
She watched his lips move.
He clapped gleefully
as she popped to the surface.
How long? she gasped.
Only 15 seconds, Grandma.
My turn, my turn!!
I have to get a pool,
picking the algea from her hair.
See where other of my writer friends go with this art prompt on Magpie Tales,
a weekly linkup for poets and writers.
Myself, I just write what comes to mind when I see the prompt...oh well, what can I say!!
Laurel. It's good to be bizarre once in a while:)
