This is what the fish said

-1-
How long can the hide and seek go on?
The net is cast everyday and soon
you will be `it'.
A fish's silence says a lot
The one under the oath of Hatha Yoga
called back to say
`Ruthless love breeds contempt'

-2-

This is temple river
These are temple fish
Casting nets is prohibited here
Some fish even wear golden rings

They live on the puffed-rice of silence
They do not always decipher the meaning of dreams
Today they said move on to the big ocean
when the pond gets small

-3-

Eels travel miles to mate at mid sea
Some fish swim up current to
mate, lay eggs and die
Some spread the love scent for miles
with a small flutter of the tail

The laying of eggs is an all together
different matter.
Just a small movement of the body and a
small opening of the secret passage

and millions of tiny wonders slide down
guaranteeing there will be life after all
do not despair.
