I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Sorry, but I’m a bit slow on this one. The fish jumped out? And the significance of execu-tricks/trix?


    • The fish escaped by executing all his tricky manouvres. An attempt at wordplay, lol!

      He didn’t jump out of the water – ‘…through dilute air in a watery matrix…’

      Water is a chemical substance with the chemical formula H2O. A water molecule contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms connected by covalent bonds.


  2. That is lovely Adee.
    Why do I suddenly have to fill in all sorts of details to comment?


    • Thanks, Gran. I have had to approve your comment. Maybe they are ‘fixing’ things, e.g. I have had to wait for approval each and every time I comment on some bloggers’ posts.


  3. execu-tricks – this is how most governments operate


  4. ha nice word play there at the end…nice capture of the fish…smiles.


  5. A slippery, tricky customer indeed, Adee. Now you see him, now you don’t 😉 xxx


  6. You’ve made me miss the fish ponds here. It’s all frozen and white for a couple more months..


  7. Fish: lovely creatures to observe but sometimes tricky to find!


  8. With execu-tricks,,, the vagabond is not gold…but the parachute is.. Nice work, Denise.

  13. Love the word execu-tricks 🙂


  14. I’ve seen those execu-tricks, Adee – I had a fish tank as a child and one night one of my miniature sharks leapt straight from the tank and landed on my bedside lamp lightbulb, which promptly exploded – big fright!


    • Hahaha, Bb, I had a goldfish bowl for a long time until 1996 when I moved to Joeys. Don’t ask me how many times I had to pick the goldfish up off the floor and put him back in…
