Content in Their Domain

The fish, confined to the pond,
are alert to a presence.

They swim to the edge and
anticipate….

Sometimes food is tossed
and turbulence transpires.

Sometimes presence passes,
anticipation wanes…

They turn and feast on the
nourishment that surrounds.

They remain quiet, content
in their domain,

as they have for fifteen
years.
