Among The Reeds

I heard a sound among the reeds

The first, a shot

Then splashing feet

And up into the air I went

First wet, then cold

And wet again.

And with me, all the other specks

Were spun into a new unrest.

I heard a sound among the reeds

Carelessly crashing over me

I saw them dance,

Their fuzzy caps

Cascading into brilliant bows.

I heard a shot among the reeds.

The first, a wonder.

Then disbelief.
