At the pond, by the walkway I sat down
I was enticed to stare down
colorful Koi swimming around
the Radiant red ones made me astound

Staring at them, calmness washed over me
by their fluid movement honestly
I was more than happy
they were not scared and did not flee

Koi are a pet owner’s treasure
for they symbolize wealth and fortune for sure
from being plentiful and their superfluity
it’s what makes them treated like a prized jewelry

Their regal and elegance
is what I love about their appearance
but I wouldn’t want a pet fish
coz I love to eat fish, of course!
