Haiku challenge on ‘Shallow Water’

Today Carpe Diem has given us a double challenge. To use the prompt ‘shallow water’ and to relate to an Australian legend of the Dreamtime.

The Carpe Diem website has the full legend of Mirragan, the Fisherman, and Gurangatch, the creature he fished for. Well worth a read for an exciting tale and an insight into another culture.

Here is my attempt at this prompt:

Night! The shallow stream
is black. Only the star-eyes
of Gurangatch shine.
