We had a pond makeover with new plants. We now have a papyrus forest to gaze up at while we swim. Some of the new plants are fast growing and made our water clear again.
POEM FOR PRINCESS AURORA FROM THE POND FISH
For she who swims now through the endless shining waters
We mourn for her
our hearts diminished.
we bathe in the shadows of the lily
dive through the sparkle
of the fountain water
She dwells now in our memory
her scales are iridescent opals
they are pearl drops in the moonlight
Seaweeds stroke her body
in the eddies and byways
near the shores of her departure
Sisters and brothers
brush their fins against her gently,
guide her through the currents
to the spirits of our ancestors
as they pass in mighty shoals
swimming through the long time
the days and nights
