That most personal of our possessions....
That glorious red liquid,
Full of energetic  mysteries,
Flowing around our bodies
A though on a race-track;
Carrying organisms,
All leading their own lives,
But intensely related to us.
That current
We hear flowing past our ears,
That renewable energy
That, surely,
Will weave its magic
Can, in an instant,
Become a splash of red paint
On a wall.


We had a reunion in the park
And drowned old Lawrence for a lark!
Now we're regretting his decease!
Don't look now! Here come the Police!

Well done with the picture prompt - one which had upset me.
I enjoyed the second one too - a little light relief after the serious one.
