Koi Pond

Japanese koi pond

Tranquil grasses bow with breeze

Waterfall’s shallow descent

Trickles pleasantly

Embroidered carp swim with grace

Brightly, colored fishnet gems

    The picture is super…so colorful.
    You describe the fish so nicely—so sweet



  2. lovely poem and beautiful picture gayle. these fish ponds look really beautiful


  3. you are not writing any poems, whats up? how is auntie?


    • I guess I’m going through a “dry” spell! Although I did write last night, but not a poem. I wrote about some times in my life when things could have turned out really differently if I hadn’t been “protected”. I may post it today.

      Auntie is doing OK. My brother is with her now for several weeks while he does some work on her house. He will be a big help to her for running errands, etc. She has another doctor’s appointment coming up in early July regarding her thyroid. We’ll find out more then. Thanks for asking about her and caring.

      Lots of love…


      • good that your brother is doing the roster duty this time. 🙂

        i have been writing a lot lately, i have formed a routine and am fully relishing it.

        soon will start sharing them. 🙂


  4. The picture reminds me of stoic tranquility.

    Have a nice weekend. 🙂


  5. Oh, this is nice. I love koi and would certainly have a koi pond if ever I had property again. Did you take the photo too? Good shot.


    • Thank you, Jamie. Aren’t they beautiful…

      No, did not take the photo–it was a “free” one off of Google I think. : )


  6. Oh, I love the phrase “embroidered carp”. What a perfect way to describe their beauty!

    My mom had a pond in her back yard and at one point she had Koi in it, but the hawks in the area kept carrying them off, so she quit buying them. They were beautiful though, and smart! You could tap a stick near the edge and they would come to the surface because they knew they would soon be fed! 🙂


    • Thank you!

      All kinds of critters will eat the fish out of those ponds–it must be hard to keep them.

      I took care of a friend’s koi for a few days once and they would follow me along the edge of the pond–knowing I had food for them. They really are so pretty too.
