Big Tent Poetry/A-Z, F Is 4 Fish, G-man's FF 55




I like fish.

Words portraying fish could capture humans as well:

young fish, old fish;

big fish, small fish;

happy fish, sad fish;

runaway fish, teenager fish;


MY poems on Fish:


As yellowish as gold,

I‘m a naughty little fish

Refusing to grow old!

.

I'm a baby fish

That is fluffy, fatty,

And witty!

*****

If you were a fish, what kind of fish do you want to be?

This is written 4 Flash Friday 55, A-Z Challenge, and Big Tent Poetry!

If I were a fish, I would want to be some sort of tropical coral reef fish. Brilliant colors and all. Lovely poem.

If I were a fish, I'd be one that is not at all delicious, to human or other sea creatures.

They're delicious!

What kind of fish would I be?
The kind that don't get eaten, I hope!

Something's fishy in this 55. :)

My husband and I went to a comdey show in Chicago years ago. One of the comedians did an entire routine on fish. My husband and I still reference the dork fish even though neither one of us can still remember the punchline.

I think I might be
a deep water fish
playing with light.

This one reminds me of Dr. Seuss "one Fish Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish" One of my daughter's favs when she was little!

Playful and fun. I enjoyed this, Jingle. And to answer your question, I would be a jellyfish! ethereal and iridescent. :)

"runaway fish, teenager fish" -- evocative - whimsical - with a tinge of sadness.
