Looking- Swapping

There was a goldfish in a bowl and a kitten peeking from outside
The kitten had its nose pressed against the glass globe
Looking inside wishing wanting an in
The goldfish ogled at the kitten wanting an out
With swapped places
The kitty is inside and
The goldfish is out
Having got their wish
They both realize
That it matters not whether you are inside or out
The key is to be in tune with self
Barriers will automatically vanish
Fusing all into a unified whole
Visualization, perception, realization

Ultimately swapping places
Trading spaces. Matters not

The secret of contentment is knowing how to enjoy what you have, and
to be able  to lose all desire for things beyond your reach.
Lin Yn-tang, 1895-1976, Chinese Writer and Philologist

True contentment comes with empathy.

Pain and foolishness lead to great bliss and complete knowledge,
for Eternal Wisdom created nothing under the sun in vain.

Poem 2

swapped places- Fishdream

fumbling goldfish,  furious frantic freaking

writhing feline critter cowering confused

contained confined cogitating cajoling

finny friend forcing freedom frowning

scared cat, crying, twisted hapless toddler,

swapping places, transference, juxtaposed askew

globe, mini ocean, goldfish world, verily, true

magical, Houdini, sleight of hand, swapping

spaces, seeking  short span, brief, somersaults

confining, confusing kitty, ball of fur and fish

perception, telepathy. tantalising visualisation

teleportation, swapping spaces, trading places

who is who, what is what, vision, sighting, slanted

Fishdream free unconfined, feline foe fear fraught

swapped places, trading spaces fishdream fantasy

When of a gossiping circle it was asked,
What are they doing? The answer was, Swapping lies.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
1751-1816, Anglo-Irish Dramatist
