A Goldfish Bowl

Captured in a globe

Orange light flickers

On coruscating

Golden scales

I dip my hand

The glowing creature

Illuminates my finger

Emits the scent of whales

I carry the glow

Transfer it to the cats

Sitting on the mat

Grooming their tails

Underneath the running tap

Water falls

My little drop of sunlight

Swirls and fails

National Poetry Day Light
