Lake


I stare at the glistening sparkles,
knowing the sun planted them there.
They each appear one by one, then back under.

Soon enough, small circular waves linger.
Their source is a distant, small pebble.
The waves continue as the pebble hops.

Laughter from children radiates,
out to the water to cheer the sea life with joy.
And soon the splashes evaporate for the air.

I stare down to see my identical twin.
He smiled and laughed just the way I did.
We wore the same clothes, maybe even personality.

I look out to see the bridge eye.
The underwater sun is very bright.
It is the underwater sea god.

The next day it floods with explosions;
little raindrops are intruding the waters.
I am gone and sadly so is my twin.
