The water is still and tranquil
making you feel free and at peace.
There is a hint of a wave from a minnow,
yet the quiet is almost deafening.
To the naked ear and eye,
the scene is inviting and pleasant,
you might even want to jump in and explore
the cool blue pool in a clothesless suit.
Wade in, let the ripples your body creates surround you.
Don't forget this piece of heaven on earth
that entices you can be dangerous.
Thus, while the beauty draws you into it's depth,
know that even though its calm now~
if you underestimate its power...it can drown you.
