Having Insight

Updated on February 24, 2016

The Time Is Right

Life reminds me of gold fish in a bowl

Swimming around carefree

Looking to be fed

Happy as can be

Then one day

The owners cat takes a leisurely walk

To his surprise

A feast right before his eyes

Count them one, two, three

Look over there two more

Another one under the rock

A fish feast so he gets his friend

Her eyes widen

As her lips moisten

Too late for breakfast

A little early for lunch

We could have them for supper

That would be wonderful

A banquet

A feast

Can't wait

So we both will come back in six hours

About a half an hour later

Two strange voices are heard

O.k. I will grab the last of the boxes

You get the gold fish

How about the cats ?

The owner is coming by after work to pick them up

It must be something to pack up everything and move

Of all places

Las Vegas

I heard it gets to 120 degrees out there

Wow now that's hot

It must be something

All the night life and entertainment everywhere you look

What about the gambling ?

If your not careful you could lose everything

Think of all the alcohol and the pretty women

I don't know

Too much for me

To many choices

Give me the life of a cat

That would make me happy

Lay around all day and sleep

I'm not to crazy for what they eat

I'd rather be a gold fish

Not a care in the world

You get to swim all day and night

I think I would be happier being a cat

I would get claustrophobic

Cooped up in a bowl all day

I like to climb and roam around

Sitting in a window

Soaking up the sun

Never mind

Did you lock the door ?


Let's go we have to stop for lunch

I'm getting hungry

What about you ?

Tuna fish sounds good

I heard they have catfish on the menu

I think I will try that

Checking the door making sure it's locked

Little did they know

What could have happened

What would have happened

All I know is what did happen

      Loved this. It made me smile and have a craving for tuna fish salad.

      Ms Dora I appreciate all your help and suggestions. Thank you for following me and taking the time to read and comment. Life is full of surprises that always change our day in small ways we never expect. I have so much fun finding those differences and exploring them. I hope your day turns out to be absolutely beautiful.

      "What could [have] happened What would [have] happened All I know is ..." That's the reality of life. Quite insightful!
