Dance of the Fishes

Give me all the words
I ever needed,
standing in front
of an aquarium
and watching
how the jellyfish
seem to defy gravity,
like buoyed
ballet dancers
confined to a tank
full of water, but
how they all somehow
bring the ocean
with them.
And I stand there
mesmerized, and wonder,
how is it? they make it
look so easy, when
they’ve been preparing
their whole lives for this;
dance of the fishes,
and then, in comes
the roses,
thrown in adoration;
one upon the other;
for such extraordinary
wonder –  is to live!
