The victors and victims play the same game
of hide and seek, chase and flee. Every fish
is seeking out prey while at the same
time trying not to be some other’s dish.
On a calm, cloudless day, though, as we gaze
at the serene surface, we miss the chase
that is happening deep below the blaze
of the sun. Nor are we willing to face
the fact that such a placid looking spot
could be so turbulent down at the core.
Take the time to observe that things are not
always what they seem, but there may be more.
Although the peace might try to have you conned,
Don’t be fooled by the silent seeming pond.
