Deception

Deception

I can be comfortable
Lapping against your feet
I can be ferocious 
Sweeping down your street
I can be jovial
A playground for your child
I can be merciless 
Desolate and wild
I can be poignant
A vast expanse ahead
I can be soothing
Or I can fill your heart with dread
I can be mysterious 
Murky dark and deep
I can be gentle
Lulling you to sleep
I can give life
Or I can take it all away
As you watch your children playing 
On a Summer's day
