Assay: Alligator and Turtle

alligator bike ride 3

Sitting on a log

staring into each other’s eye

assaying their fate

deciding to either flee or die


Happening upon each other

on a late winter’s day

a perfect moment

where each can have his say


Bikers and walkers are stopped

spectators to this contest

wondering if they will fight

or just continue to rest


All eyes are upon them

they are like still life

living in the moment

amid some steep strife


A meaningful conversation

just between the two

coming to an understanding

only they have a clue


Slipping into the water

 each goes his way

having entertained the spectators

on this beautiful day
