“Looking Out My Back Door”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Lookin’ Out My Back Door.”

Look out your back window or door — describe what you see, as if you were trying to convey the scene to someone from another country or planet.

In the afternoon, my back window or lanai provides views of torrential rains. These daily Southwest Florida rains during the summer, raise the water levels of the lake.

The water now covers the ducks former seating area under a tree where they wait for morning walkers to throw seed and bread their way.

The rocks turtles sit on in the morning are now covered and I wonder where they have gone. Grasses break through the surface of the lake to provide seating for dragonflies and other insects, who rest and sun themselves.

With the increase in rains, gar-fish circle the lakes shore to feed upon minnows.

Rain changes my neighborhoods view out looking out my back door.

      2. I’m rather glad I am just learning their size potential via your photo. I used to hurl myself off the end of a dock into tidal water never considering that those little five and six inch gar fish had BIG MOMMAS!
