The Aquarium


I was a simple small fish.
A happy fish, born and living inside a small aquarium.
I didn't know that there, outside from my aquarium, was another world with oceans, rivers, lakes....
My 3 dimensional aquarium world was so beautiful!
And I was happy till I tried to find who I am and where I live.
I tried to explore the other world, the great world
but it was so big to understand in my small mind.
My god!
And then I got a fear.
The fear that came from the unknown.
Now I try to ignore the existence of the other world.
It is better to live happy every day in my aquarium world
and leave the other world to exist for the others.

Poem of the Day

poet Edward Thomas

Like the touch of rain she was
On a man's flesh and hair and eyes
When the joy of walking thus
Has taken him by surprise:

With the love of the storm he burns,
