Hunger

 

————

Pasture damp dewdrops

became tender delicacies

as the sun rays

descended down….

and devoured

each gentle pearl

in act of pure gluttony…

With an appetite never sated

by such pittances…

The sun began to slowly consume

the lake, filling its belly…

Before heading casually

back to the sky….

Knowing….

that plenty of time remained….

to finish….

the job…
