The Little Fish ~~ a Flash poem (meaning 'short')


(The Little Fish) 
 
I am the
Little Fish
Swimming in my pond 
 
Swimming is my delight
Exploring my pond 
 
Seems there is always new
Sights daily to see 

I am the
Little Fish
Swimming in my pond 

I swim from morn to night
No bell on my tail 
 
People come, watch me swim 
Wink and wave for them

A delightful song of the little fish.. I like the touch of it having no bell on its tail.

I like the no bell and the wink and wave.

What a wonderful delightful little fish... the not having it's bell makes me think there is some freedom even if it's confined to the pond.

A little fish can still exact attention of others perhaps because of colorful hues.
