DANGER !

 
On my way BACK
from the post office in VERMONT
yesterday afternoon,
I took a different unpaved ROAD
that lead me to a side of Lake Champlain
I was NOT familiar with ...

TOTALLY deserted and WILD ...

I followed the SHORE for a while,
SCAVENGING for nature TREASURES
and
taking advantage of the WARM sun ...

I came upon this weathered wood
DANGER sign ...
I MARVELED at it for a FEW seconds,
so HAPPY with my FINDING ...
Then became SUSPICIOUS ...

Danger of WHAT ?
Of WHO ?

I looked AROUND for hints,
SCANNED the horizon,
listened for UNUSUAL sounds ...
NOTHING seemed ABNORMAL ...
Yet, I SHORTENED my walk
and
rapidly TIP TOED carefully
back to my CAR,
making the LESS noise POSSIBLE
and keeping an EYE for
the unexpected ...
