smiling in a way trying to lure them in

Image: A Floating Market (here)

at the crack of dawn
emerging through the branches
birdseeds misplaced in an empty room
with intent to capture their hearts
smiling in a way trying to lure them in
but as a descendant of a wild predator
they looked askance at all the furore

thoughts seemed numbed in idleness
in a floating market to peddle their wares
but they still advanced forward
safety as a group and strength in numbers

but a sudden gust with force
like a lantern caught in the wind
the window slammed with a loud bang
it tweaked their focus and off they jumped
knowing for certain unsafe to be back
the water was clear as mirror
murky only in the night air

waited their call rolling in the clouds
sitting cross legged in a way taunting

how he gnashed  his teeth with fury
how silly to have left his shirt open
was there a reason to curse and rant
for forgetfulness endured
was a grim lesson

  1. This is a journey that seems both like dream and nightmare, and maybe returning back again in the end.
