For the visually challenged reader this image shows a red motor boat anchored near a quay. There is a small buoy floating near it. In the distance you can see a small island.

Waiting eagerly for your responses.

Thanking you all for joining this prompt.

  1. A red’un atopa the lake,
    …. placidly and silently moored,
    Mindfully unawares of the wake,
    … and what lies beneath, self-assured,
    Waiting for the unsuspecting sailor,
    … ready to take to the waters with an overzealous glee,
    Without even a hint of a seafaring prayer,
    Nor the care to look below and see,
    … those sly and darkened reptilian eyes,
    Just waiting for the time to rise and pounce,
    … Taking the shocked boatman by surprise,
    With razor-sharp teeth and pointed and blooded snout!
    ….. nothing is ever as it may appear to be,
    No such thing as calm and steady waters,
    … Florida lakes are by far the worse you see,
    Forget giant crocs! You have to watch for the gators!
