"It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable."

- Socrates

With a shimmering body,

Orange, black, and white

Cover this little fish,

make him bright

His tranquil swimming

Under the lazy turquoise waves

Fills one with awe

At the critter’s power to amaze

And as he returns to his anemone

Nestled neatly in the aquatic cave

He reaches his final moment

And upon the placid sandy seafloor makes his grave

The author's comments:

“Clownfish” depicts the sad reality that, even though many moments are filled with beauty, they are usually short-lived.
