MAGPIE/ Prompt #71

THANK YOU, Tess, for this lively presentation for Magpie Tales #71


EVOLUTION

Just one more wave, my friends,
swim with me over the spray.

We'll drop our scales,
grow legs to walk on land.

Call ourselves evolved.

Hi Isabel-
I think Darwin went through a couple more species! I'm into conservation these days!!

Excellent. Thanks for the smiles.

This piece seems to be taking people to a simple, evolving place. There is certainly the motion of your waves.

Martin H. said...

It's all been said. The power of a few words. Well done.

Lyn said...

Hi Martin H.-
Like what you said..a few words...thank you!!

we are the we said...

wondering...is this about evolution of man or evolution of a specific man within a lifetime... perhaps both. simply written, but thought provoking.

Lyn said...

Hi we are the we-
Welcome...
I think possibly it's about ego, that walking upright proves we're evolved...or.....
Thanks!
