Quill of the Mind – 2019-2020 – Treacherous

Treacherous 

Living an ocean

Glimpses of light brighten

Trying to spiral above and heighten 

Yet deny the notion

 

Fish swim overcast 

Always searching 

Always lurching

Hoping not to be passed 

 

Dolphins and whales flush

Octopi and squids shriek

Sharks and dolphins peek

Lobsters and shrimp rush

 

Blind you go 

Never glimpsing the shadow

 

– Jessica McKeon, Grade 10
