Alive, Aware and Abiding
By Don Segal
The fish is Aware of light above and none below
as it weaves here and there
Out and in of some rocks and sea weeds.
The fish is Alive as it seeks and it strives
To maintain its scaly skin
As it swims flashing tail through the sea.
The fish Abides in its space
That parts before and composes behind
as it slithers through the wet ether.
