I have always been fascinated
by ponds – big, medium or small.
Some are natural, others may come
with lovely sculptures or refreshing fountains.
But, my favourite is the pond that has healthy
well-fed Koi swimming in it.
I visited a Catholic church recently and
I was delighted to see a beautiful pond
with a statue of Jesus Christ.
And when I took a closer look
I was thrilled to see a group of energetic
Koi swimming in the pond.
Just watching the Koi makes me glad.
I feel peace within and at the same time intrigued
by these amazing Koi, for they embody
a kind of quiet beauty and mystery.
And I can’t help but ponder
on the importance of
love, unity, and friendship.
