Putting My Feet in the Dirt Prompt#2 The Pregnant Guppy
Under the ice
safe from the cold
there’s a dark little world
looking for a home.
A splash of color, a few spiky seeds
it smells like apples and lemons
in this empty sea.
When the light finds it
and makes it’s heart beat
this dark little world
will open it’s eyes and grow some teeth.
it will sprout some wings and unfurl it’s fins
and then it will begin to
grow and breathe and swim
