Yellow Butterflyfish and Snakeskin Discus swim freely in this life I call an aquarium- I see a Purple Regal Tang as the Pufferfish sang with a melody like a sweet guitar strum. Blue and pink coral, like a make-believe floral stand strong and tall in the salt-watered tank- The lemon green Laurel streams along so eternal as the Orange Angelfish swim along the bank. A Red-Tailed Crab and a slimy Snail like to grab food sprinkled from the main aquarium caretaker- Instead of eating scraps they find a lily pad to rest and continue being nosey spectators. Is this just a dream? Is my life not as it seems? Cuz’ when I look around along the ground my human reflection is all I unbelievably see- This life that I have found, I just sit here profound gazing at the amazing life of salt water beauty. Oh no! I see a Reef Shark and I start to embark on my way towards the side of the glass- I find relief in the belief that he may depart since he comes from a breed of a docile class. Rainbow Sea Stars you can see from afar with hues like a pink and yellow sunset- What a lovely sight! I can’t forget the spark of her glowing romantic shaded silhouette. A Painted Turtle guy who caught my fascination wandering in front of me slower than a snail- A super fertile Ray lays her eggs with illumination as the Foxface Rabbitfish flips her yellow tail. Living in a tank of salt is obviously my true calling, even though I always wanted to be a veterinarian- My true wish is to live with fish, for in water there is no falling- Floating, swimming, kicking with a swish, I love my life in a beautiful aquarium.

Your aquarium teems with poetic life. A lot more interesting than the Guppies I always managed to kill in my gold fish bowl. Not a lot of inspiration watching floating fish. Congratulations LuLoo, well deserved...

Full of color and description, Laura. Congrats on your top award. Worthy of reading twice to catch the internal rhyme.
