All that remains: here in my afterlife as a 'mainstream' blogger, with what little I know.

Stream of Life

Snub-nosed
Cruising past
perilous outcrops
The stream of life
Hurled rush
Pushes me ashore
Tail battered
Scarred
Sometimes bleeds
Redirects,
Flips, whips
I shimmy higher

The stream of life
Rushes around
Sends me down
A sandy stir
Dust up
Rippled skin,
Scale-worn
Deflect
Float again into

The stream of life
Soft, Bubbling
Sends me again
On a journey
Little fins coast
Eyes alert
Body sleek
Shimmer beneath
Cool glass sun

The stream of life
Unaware
Tosses me asea
Turbulent tide
Monsters quake,
Glare, menace
My feeble flesh
Narrows to hide
Dark wasteland

The stream of life
Fades fast
Leaves me be
My misfortune
No business here
Little pond
So long ago
I miss home
I look back for
The stream of life
Invisible, gone
I'm on my own
Goodbye
