flirtatious clownfish 

tries to impress an angel --

Which Fish Lures You

It’s said there are many fish in the sea So which type of fish would you choose to be The sharks and jellyfish I would avoid Swimming with dolphins I’ve always enjoyed Tropical river queens are angelfish To mate with one of them, male species wish All fish seem to evade barracuda Even powerful, albacore tuna But of all fish swimming in lakes and seas There’s just one with humor that seeks to please Clownfish perform an amusing sea dance With host fish before they take residence If given my choice, a clownfish I’d be There’s no greater gift than laughter to me

Have you swam the forests      under the seas
glided it's waters             wandered it's keys
watched the gray giants             and albino squid
attached to kelp leaves             sharks eggs were hid

Clouded by algae             just being born
followed the whales             rounding Cape Horn
watching up rivers             salmon schools run
fur seals cartwheeling             under the sun

soft twinning corals                swaying like trees
waving their branches                  as if in breeze
Fingers of hydra                 grasping their meals
under sea ferns                unrolling their reels

the cuddlefish hug                the limbs of it's mate
a new generation                they're about to create
wondering wherever                your wonder has gone
wondering how species                can gender our song

a manatee grazes                 upon the sea grass
beneath the boats                 ocean swarms underpass
in every color                every rainbow                 and hue
daily inquiry                into what do they do

so graceful like                ballerinas they play
wandering it's reaches                by night and day
the nudibranches                 scaling their hills
Lobsters saluting                 and razorfish drills

swimming the whirlpools                 with shapely tails
jackass penguins                and jellies with sails
predict the movements                 of the Blue whales
picture the angels                 sacheting their trails

shimmering glitters                sparkling the sands
finwalkers walking                as if they had hands
leatherback babies                 skimming the tides
upon water fountains                the sea urchin's slides

a red emperor                ruling the the strays
roving the shoals                 edging the bays
basket stars wrapping                themselves in embrace
the straights and fjords                where sea otters race

pipefishes drifting                the eels in their caves
upon the reef floors                fish dancing their raves
shoveling and building                with undersea tools
the Jacks and Jills                 swimming to schools

tubeworms array                 upon hot water vents
where clownfish play                anemone tents
surfing the currents                and ocean spray
moving so swiftly                they're off and away

composed of armies                marching the streams
sea mountain passages                 and sub...marine dreams
within the reef beds                creches do sleep
in seaweed meadows                lives in the deep

Marlins found herding                 sardines and smelt
it's all the playground                sea lives have been dealt
life's exhibition                 an  endless parade
so many wonders                radiantly  displayed

Sea Life

I'd love to live a sea life,
there's just so much to do.
It would never ever be boring,
in the deep deep ocean blue.

I could juggle with clownfish,
sunbathe with the rays,
take off with the pilot whales,
and go blading with skates

Blow balloons with the pufferfish,
play pool with a shark
go hunting with sea lions,
teach a dogfish to bark

I could strum with guitarfish,
play piano with tunas,
make jazz with a bass,
then go solo with groupers

And we'd all have sea-cucumber sandwiches for lunch,
and jellyfish for desert.
