Goliath Grouper



                       lipped fish
                 lurks in the deepest
    blue. Rarely seen, I dive right in to take a look at
this magnificent beast. I hear he’s almost as big as me – YIKES!
  Eerie silent of the ocean. Only thoughts are spoken.
        From nowhere the Great Goliath 
                  Grouper appears with
                          a mane of                                                     

         For contest - 'ATTACK'

    Emma, I love the way you "drew" the fish with your words. Had a chuckle thinking of the grouper's "mane of Sardines." Well done! The competition in this contest was amazing, I judged blindly and I'm glad to see your name on the winners' list. Love, Carolyn

    May I ask how you get the shape from cutting and pasting? I can even get a simple centered alignment for other things. Thanks, Gwendolen

    I am thoroughly amazed at this geometrically delicious catch of yours, Emma. I also like the mane of sardines. A poetic creation and I am casting a net to catch it and throw it in my favorites!! Carolyn will leap for joy at this! Best to you and your amazing work. Gwendolen

    The word 'great' is not meant to be there, its meant to be above the words 'lipped fish'! Can't get it to move, its supposed to be part of the fin for my shape poem!
