Deep

Deep


What you see is what you get
The waters are not that deep
They are transparent and calm
And could lull you to sleep
 
What is visible on the surface
Is reflected directly below
Nothing is hidden from view
Nor veiled to deceive or shadow
 
Still waters and calm seas
So you may navigate easily
No blind spots to fool you
Or dangers lurking deceitfully
 
She has charted your course
You may set sail from the docks
Come to me, sings the siren
Guiding you to the rocks

    That last verse completely twists the story. Very well told, Christine.

      I accidentally sent you a message meant for someone else! I deleted it but you might have seen it. It called you a funny lady 🙂 You might be, of course, but didn’t want it taken out of context 🤭

        I have always thought being called funny was a compliment… so although I did realise, I wouldn’t have minded 😉
