Present, Potential, Clouds: Alligator’s Recap of the Day

alligator on golf course 2 may 5

Living in the present

so many things to do

life has potential

some days not a clue


Lying on this course

in the morning sunshine

fish jumping near me

a fine place to dine


A sound in the distance

scrumptious smells in the air

face lifted upward

eyes staring with a glare


Opportunities abound

a bird flies by

diving into the water

returning to the sky


Glancing around

comfortable in the present

head back down

the moon is crescent


Time to slip away

rain falling down

day turning to night

creatures are abound


Living in the moment

having fulfilled the potential of the day

clouds giving me cover

as I retire in the bay
