Written for: The Twiglets #148 – “crossing water”
array of fish
crossing the clear waters
in a glass-bottom boat
crossing the stream
on a bumpy log
It takes some time
to become proficient
at mixing hot water with cold
and getting a perfect temperature.
A woman’s cantankerous daughter
did as she please, not as she ‘oughta.
She took out a canoe
and a six-pack of brews
‘Stead of crossing, she fell in the water.
