Ann Sargeant spoke to PSC's Creative Writing Club on October 19, 2017, about extended metaphors. As a result, I wrote this poem.
if he were nature
he'd be a blue calm sunny Sunday
on the slow moving river
lapping at marsh green grass
lazily floating past birds, an alligator, a bobcat
and much like a sudden thunderstorm
he'd break fast and wide across the water
dizzily passing the shores in broad strokes
of dazzling liquid sunshine
returning to the Peace of hammock-lined marshy back yards
and the call of stillness bending the
wooded river landscape
*He enjoys kayaking on the Peace River.
