A day born from the wave *

A little pebble
got animated
the swamped life

the fossils have been emerged
from the bottom
of the pond

a troublemaker
misrepresented, twisted
divine gift with scramble eggs

ordinary fish in flash
stuck out its eyes-
hid in the shell

settled low
feeds
the deviants.


*quote by Pablo Neruda

  7. How creative your response to one of my favorite writer, Neruda ~ I like to think of the pebble as troublemaker, or maybe a fish in a flash ~
