The Daffodil Naiad
written around 2001

Entranced by golden swirls
I wade into the pool
It is too good to be true, I tell myself
The pool assures me I am wrong
The others around me play at the edges
They praise the pool
Admire it
Tell me I should go in further
They have reasons why they cannot
But the pool compliments me, they say
We are well matched

Playing at the edge
They do not see the blackness beneath the golden film
That peeks for brief moments between the swirls
At first, I'm not certain I see them myself
Then another one shows
I call attention to it
The others patronize me
I am being paranoid
This is a safe pool
Not at all like the others that nearly destroyed me
But they never waded in those pools
They were golden too

Playing at the edge
They are safe
The pool is happy to leave them there
Why not me?

Looking at my distorted reflection among the swirls
I know the answer
I came from one of these pools
I have the ability to feed them
That is why they call for me

I disturb the swirls with my hand
More of the black shows itself
I try to tell the edge players
Some ponder and concede I might be right
Others think I am imagining things
I look back down
Knowing the decision I must make

They have never swam the golden pools
I have
I turn from the center
Trailing golden swirls
As the edge players stare at me
Never understanding
That in the depths awaits my death
