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.

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!
