Life #haiku

Osprey and fish - close up

Fish in the river
Swimming along with the flow
Doesn’t see the bird


Written for Colleen’s Poetry challenge.  Each week she gives us two keywords, only we must use synonyms only, not the words themselves.  This week we were free to choose keywords and the key words I chose were “Water” and “Current” This week I decided to do a  haiku, and though that rhymes, the haiku doesn’t ;).

(Last week’s poem was called “Life ;)”, but this is the other side of Life…)

          Actually, our two exchanges reminds me of a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon – Calvin tells Hobbes that his motto is live each day like it was your last because you never know, today you may step off of the curb and be creamed by a cement mixer. He then asks Hobbes what his Motto is. Hobbes reply “Look both ways” ;)
