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.....
