2018 and 2019 have been major years of change in my life. One thing remains a constant: water and fish. That was on my mind yesterday. I have never been much for writing poetry, but this came to me and I wanted to see if it came together alright.
Water and Fish
What is the allure? Where is the draw?
Water and fish test you, challenge you, don't pass sentence.
Water and fish test your agility, your strength, your stamina,
Water and fish test your skill, your observation, your patience.
Water and fish don't judge your failures or celebrate your success.
Water and fish don't know what you earn, how you live, what you wear.
Water and fish can never forget you because they will never know you.
Water is passing through to it's next stop, ever flowing,
Fish swim, eat, get eaten, grow, spawn, survive in the water.
To join their world is to escape the world of judgement,
Moving to where you are just a moment in passing.
Water and fish were there, will always be there.
Water and fish may see you come and go.
Water and fish have never known you.
Water and fish never will know you.
Water and fish do not care.
Water and Fish just are.
