Fish bowl

Fish bowl

A Poem by Najam Us Saher


FISH BOWL
O' beauty of my bowl,
Do you like living there?
O' you tiny soul,
If you don't want to stay; break away.
 
O' little fish gliding in exuberance,
How do you live happily?
O' small life of innocence,
Teach me your way.

O' fragile fish, you capture my attention, 
Doesn't your beauty fade away?
O' fish of my admiration,
There is nothing less about you to say.

O' joyful soul; mini delight, 
Why are you going away?
O' pleasure of my sight,
Guide me thy way.

O' what a creative writing, reminds me of the time when I had a fish ball back then..
Your lines about a simple fish ball made them feel special.

Thank you again for sharing such a beautiful writing.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. Thank you so much 😊
Watching the fishes and admiring their beauty and the small yet and incredibly wonderful life has been some of the things I've really loved as a kid, and I still do..That experience is very Serene and soothing😊

Small may this bowl be, and little are those beautiful creatures inside it, but that shows a complete Living ecosystem alive, an ecosystem which is indispensable without water, and an environment that can teach us a lot, if we wish too!

Thankyou for sharing this poem, Najam.Your poem is as beautiful as the little lovely creatures in the fish bowl, that never fails to me us smile thoughtfully.

I am happy that this poem could help you. You have my greatest gratitude. ☺
Reaching for your poetic heights here, Najam.

I enjoyed the write and the theme; a kind of Keatsian ode to a fish bowl and it's inhabitant; very inventive. Perhaps use apostrophe after each 'O' or exclamation to give the letter greater force and impact, as if you are throwing your plea of beauty upon the universe.

A write of simplicity with grasp reaching for the stars of language. Nicely done.

I like the concept of the poem. I imagine staring at a fish bowl with a tiny being swimming, happily unconcerned with life's issues. A lovely poem :)
