Magpie Tales - Mag 116 - Drifting!!

The image challenging us this week is...

Stillness Drifting

She felt the pain;
she sat so still.
She felt the rain;
it didn't feel real!

She felt the water;
she's sitting still.
She felt it rushing;
it's tears will spill.
She felt the coldness;
she felt it still.
She felt the dampness;
it's fingers grasping her heels.

She felt it swirl;
she lowered her head.
She felt the darkness;
and now she's dead.

 The water seemed so peaceful...too peaceful.  I just had to go this way.  Always aware of what lies beneath.

Here is my take on the piece...
