Breath of a Pond: Part 1 of 3

𝑮𝒖𝒓𝒈𝒍𝒆, 𝒈𝒖𝒓𝒈𝒍𝒆

The pond surface is still,

The pond surface is still, lily pads drifting across a surface so blue,

The pond surface is still, lily pads drifting across a surface so blue, it is like the sky fell into the water,

The pond surface is still, lily pads drifting across a surface so blue, it is like the sky fell into the water, the clouds drifting across in shimmers of light

The pond surface is still, lily pads drifting across a surface so blue, it is like the sky fell into the water, the clouds drifting across in shimmers of light from the midday 𝐬𝐮𝐧

Leaves hang over the clear waters,

Leaves hang over the clear waters, dew bunching up in strings of pearls,

Leaves hang over the clear waters, dew bunching up in strings of pearls, slowly dripping onto the water lilies that sit silently under them:

Leaves hang over the clear waters, dew bunching up in strings of pearls, slowly dripping onto the water lilies that sit silently under them: one two one, one two 𝐨𝐧𝐞

𝑪𝒍𝒊𝒄𝒌, 𝒄𝒍𝒊𝒄𝒌

Soft ripples stir the pond's surface

Soft ripples stir the pond's surface as a dragonfly gently lands on the lily,

Soft ripples stir the pond's surface as a dragonfly gently lands on the lily, shaking out its wings heavy with dew,

Soft ripples stir the pond's surface as a dragonfly gently lands on the lily, shaking out its wings heavy with dew, perching on the edge,

Soft ripples stir the pond's surface as a dragonfly gently lands on the lily, shaking out its wings heavy with dew, perching on the edge, waiting to again take 𝐟𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭

Translucent wings flutter gently,

Translucent wings flutter gently, water again dripping onto the water lily,

Translucent wings flutter gently, water again dripping onto the water lily, the sun's blaze reflecting off the surface of the water,

Translucent wings flutter gently, water again dripping onto the water lily, the sun's blaze reflecting off the surface of the water, bending it into strange patterns of 𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭

𝑪𝒓𝒐𝒂𝒌, 𝒄𝒓𝒐𝒂𝒌

The frogs perch on lily pads,

The frogs perch on lily pads, singing their throating morning song,

The frogs perch on lily pads, singing their throating morning song, webbed feet extended and necks arched in the laziness

The frogs perch on lily pads, singing their throating morning song, webbed feet extended and necks arched in the laziness of the time when the sun is 𝐡𝐢𝐠𝐡

Underneath the grown ones,

Underneath the grown ones, small tadpoles dart here and about,

Underneath the grown ones, small tadpoles dart here and about, playing their games beneath the still waters,

Underneath the grown ones, small tadpoles dart here and about, playing their games beneath the still waters, flickering and dancing 𝐛𝐲

Thank you! Part two and three will consist of three more animals each :)))
