They came in a fish net still alive gasping for breath.

On a rain swept dawn, gills working overtime

A battle in vain.

Hoping to unite in some other life, two lifeless bodies lie alongside.

The elated fishmonger cries hoarse about his fresh stock.

Somewhere close a mangy dog and a well fed cat engage in conversation

About Life perhaps!

Close to the market a wife gets busy, grinding spices to cook the fresh fish

The simmering curry a perfect blend of flavours, much like life at its best.

A satisfying meal, a burp in appreciation.

Yes, all is right. Today will be a good day.

The coy smile of the young wife

The odours of fish languish in the air.....
