Seahorses

Deafening silence;
the germ of a noisy thought
bubbles at its heart,
ready to burst stars
into gushing streams,
rivers and mighty oceans
that teem with life.
Seahorses,
short-snouted and spiny,
tide-tangled in the briny,
are eager to shed the waves
and give the land a try.

Kim M. Russell, 2017

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Sunday Writing Prompt #233 “Creation Myth”

 This week we are either creating our own creation myths or retelling/sharing existing myths.
