A fish in the jar

She swims slightly and she floats feathering;
She flaunts her color red, yellow and electric blue;
Her wings spread out scattering, gold brown
Red and blue; green and yellow; orange and black;
He Swim and she swims as knew no boundary;
Her hairs so tangle slimy floating afloat widely;
Help her and help her out and in up and down;
Shinning through the watery body;
Passing it again and out; Oh! The golden creature;
Oh! you the survivor; the challenger of your world;
Nature! Your best option, you the eye catcher;
The holder of beholder; the purple of each eye;
Flapping and fluttering; waving and wagging;
Shaking and swimming; vibrating and twitching;
Out and in; to and fro; catching and Deeping;
Up and down; waving and swimming;
You hold and you bewitched and you seduces;
Like a shadow you float and you deep few steps;
Into that glass jar of your life, tangling harder for a reason, life.

Make me happy; make me smiles all that I see you;
Into your watery bowl; that shinny single pot;
Cleaner the better you makes me see you;
Like a mermaid you dazzle and shine and flips;
Enthralling and charming; the fascinating and absorbing;
You moves a circuiting; your presence so warmly;
Your attitude a mystery; your voice so tinny;
Oh! the memory of living; you’re such a change;
Ocean! Your dream, glass lines your world;
Pumping in and out; your gills so alluring attracting;
Dirty and decaying; you stay afloat and swimming;
Tiny and slimy you goes; fresher your world
You stay happier ever the way you be;
World! Your world so tiny and round, limited;
Like a shadow you float and you deep few steps;
Into that glass jar of your life, tangling harder for a reason, life.
