It’s anchored here, like a red beacon
Inviting the weary to enjoy a ride
Sail the calm waters, with air in your hair
Keep some time aside for relaxing, savoring life
Fantastic response again this week in response to this image. Please click on the links to read the contributions of our lovely participants.

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!
