School - Poem by joses tirtabudi

In a deep saltwater pool
Darting around on the floor
Sandy-colored fish in a school
The only living thing I saw
The water was so murky and thick
I couldn’t see far
There they go, oh so quick
Swimming through sunshine arranged like bars
As they passed through the rays
Their scales reflected, a soft rainbow
They seemed to fade away as they went on their way
As I glided forward so low
In the sunlight
They seemed to have stripes
Some bits seemed invisible to sight
While other parts in the sun glinted a pinkish white
Finally they seemed in the distance to melt
As away from me they did belt
A silent, phantom-like school
