“Shhhhh…..”

“Don’t make a sound, you will scare it away!

“Let’s approach it quietly and catch it while it is unaware of us”

A twig snaps and the mallard is startled, looks around suspiciously

Joey holds his camera steady and snaps a ton of photos

“I hope you got some good ones because I am not doing this again

The water is cold and slimy with algae”, said Ben, looking down at his jeans which now look dark green stained with the stagnant water of the lake.

Hidden deep in the forest, stood this ancient structure

Made of hand-hewn stones it intrigued every passerby

“What is that?” Asked an innocent young voice

“Ah, sweetheart this is not a place meant for children to visit”

“You mean it is an evil place?” She asked

“Oh no my love, it is a place of magic, a portal to past”

“But should be approached with extreme caution and care”

When you’re older I will tell you all about it, gramps promised

“Till then you should bid your time and stay away”

But children never listen to the voice of experience and reason

They are still looking for her in the jungle, whereas

They should have traveled to the past where she’s growing old

An old tree stands proud and tall

It has endured through many a storm

Survival is an instinct that has prolonged its life

It swayed with the winds and molded itself to suit

The direction of the sun and the flow of the water

We can learn a lot of lessons from the nature

If we see what is around us and how it is surviving

Christine woke up when the bus bumped on a pothole. Rubbing her eyes she yawned and took a look around. And just froze!

What was going on?

The bus was full of passengers when she got on it and during her short nap, they were mostly gone. It was a non-stop service and the bus was not supposed to stop anywhere on the route. What was happening?

Just then one of the passenger turned his head to look back. Christine opened her mouth to scream but no sound came out and she fell back on the seat in a dead faint. The face looking back at her had no eyes just empty sockets. There was blood dripping from the fangs protruding from his mouth.

“Hey ma’am are you okay?”

Someone was shaking her shoulder. She looked around, everything was as it should have been.

I love standing by the water all alone, just by myself

I may not catch any fish at all but being here gives me peace

I think deep though and ponder upon the secrets of the universe

I look at the horizon and marvel at the beauty of the creation

I feel gratitude and immense joy at being here and being alive

Now and here

I am safe here.

I will come out when they all leave.

How was I to know that those shoes, clothes and the towel belonged to someone taking a dip in the ocean. I thought they were there for the taking.

I hope the person they belong to has come ashore safely.

I will stay here and just watch.

Crimson Creative Challenge- 94- Just a peek

The gate

Slightly ajar

Holding mystery inside

Calling my name to step in

Just a quick peek I promise myself

What I find inside is awe inspiring

An unkempt beauty, untamed and wild

Flowers and shrubs, fruit trees and berry bushes

Bursting forth in colorful profusion randomly scattered

Trespassing is wrong but I cannot resist

Staying here awhile and letting my eyes feast

Be afraid when you step into a dark alley

Dangerous beings may be lurking in the shadows

Better to take a friend along rather than venturing alone

That way you both can share the excitement together

Or face the danger, united as a team

Because you see, a friend is an asset in joy and hardship alike
