its diabolical

how it can sneak up like that

out of the blue


one moment youre enjoying bird-song, sun-filled sky

the scent of lilac on the breeze

the stream of water past your boat


the next moment

some how

its found you




and you realize

it had been stalking you

all along

hiding in the broad light of day


to pounce

on this unguarded moment
