Day 11 of #NaPoWriMo: It Scared The Water

it scared the water. down to blood

its body heavy; frozen pond

the trees are trembling in the wind.


it hurt the water. silver fish

that glide soundlessly just beneath

they kept on moving, racing through


and all above was frozen still

and frantic movement down below


survival hinges on the warmth


it froze the water down to blood


can’t stop until the thaw.
