Water Crossing Quick Write

I heard the roaring current, roaring like a lion.

I felt the numbing stone underfoot.

I saw the big black eels slithering around like snakes.

 I wonder if I would ever live to tell the tale.

I heard the wind whispering to me.

I felt terrified - what happened if I fell in ?

I saw the grass on the opposite bank waving to me.
