Today’s NaPoWriMo challenge is a nine line poem of any form. For A to Z Challenge were looking for a GoidReads quote beginning with the letter H (first or last name) and the picture below comes from Bikurgurl for #100WordWednesday.
“I can’t say what my first thought was as I sunk below the surface, because it was mostly a string of four-letter words” —Rachel Hawkins
I’ve always been scared to swim in lakes,
Who knows, what’s creeping below?
Something skims my leg, I shriek loudly.
Yet I wonder if I’m feeling fish,
Or if I’m imagining some creature,
Whose bite, takes me below the surface.
Then I’m struggling, lunging for air,
If only I can make it towards —
Luminious eternity shocks.
