Poems by Brother Ollie: the Tired Monk
Stocking is an act of kindness a blessing in fact. It runs in line with nature's right of extending the flock. Continue the good work B.Ollie!Hank
We passed a truck, loaded with fish to stock the river the other day. It has Live Fish written on the side and so my boys were wondering. Cool moment, nice to see new life infect the pond.
Brother Ollie,Some time for a little relaxation and enjoyment. Seeing the smiles on new faces, brings an inner warmth and feelgood factor. I hope that the new intake of gold fish will appreciate the blessings found in their new surroundings too:)Eileen
Sometimes.. when we see other people smiling.. all of our exhaustion washes away as we are warmed by their positive energy :D Beautiful write..!
"novice monks run / looking deep / for the gold glints / and silver fin flicks"..aw..so very cute...
It's amazing how many smiles can be elicited by 41 cent fish, isn't it?? Ah, the simple things in life.
A full pond inside our hearts and heads makes any 41 cent fish flow and shine (love that opening description)
I would love to watch for the smile of the koi...
I can SEE those smiles!!!!! Kids are wonderfully easy to make happy, arent they?
Those little things that bring us such joy...just 41 cents is all we may need and sometimes those smiles are found for free!Donna@LivingFromHappiness
41 cent fish are fish nonetheless! Beauty is not bounded by price. Smiles.
Stocking a pond, enjoyment in the present while preserving a bit of the future. Elizabeth
I love the simple joy!
My brother is joining a competition of kois. I told him it's not really about winning all the time. The poem is full of love and hope. I like how one enjoy life's simplicity.
There is joy for all, near and far. Love it!
The fun of new fish will always be there, if for a different reason.
I, too, love water gardens. One holds Koi, the other, native species. And of course they both accommodate the dogs.
Thanks for helping with the development of Olsonomics.
