Suspended in water

Suspended in water

tiny fluttering of fins

you work so hard to remain



You dart, twist and turn

scoot between rocks

Chase one anthers to



Floating in the bubbles

created by the pump

I see you bask, do they



I come to your tank

you come to greet me

are you looking at me

the way i’m looking at you


You are not free

held in a tank

I am not free

bound to a house


I am thankful for your serenity

you give me peace

you capture me, mesmerize me

I thank you
