Fish And Water - Poem by Raveendran N.V.

Me, very fishy, unable to understand water
Move about in search of an answer

They say water, water everywhere
But what is water they don’t say

Where is water, I don’t see, don’t feel
I move all right, so what?

Water, water everywhere
I don’t drink a drop

Let me ask the giant fish
The grand sire, who knows better

And he tells without water
You can live not a moment …

    Pure enchantment! I believe that fish even survived the deluge.They just do what comes naturally. Take care.

    Warmest regards,
