I stare out into the lake.
How I wish I was free.
Fish swim beneath me.
Fish do not fall in love.
Fish do not get their hearts broken.
Maybe this is how a fish feels when someone catches it.
I feel the hook in my mouth, dragging me away.
A kingfisher darts past me.
So beautiful.
I wonder if they fall in love.
No kingfisher would cheat on their partner.
Humans do.
Humans are useless.
Perhaps I should be a tree.
Trees have no feelings.
Trees would not feel this pain.
But it must be a very dull life.
I stare out into the lake.
How I wish I was free.
Something I wrote in five minutes this morning. The photo is my sister out in the forest on the edge of town.

The poem reflects what she could be thinking.

I think I like being me, and to heck with freedom. Change is an abundant force in the world, and has a knack for turning up when you least expect it.

"No kingfisher would cheat on their partner."

Source, please? :XD:

Joking aside, I like this a lot. Very moody and forlorn, and it fits the photo beautifully.
