No longer curious, the fish kept swimming.
No-one knew what it was or what it was for, and eventually as it didn’t do anything or go anywhere, the marine life simply ignored it.
The coral was different.
It saw an opportunity and bided its time.
The little lichens had made a start. They were always the foot soldiers in development, as gradually their ranks would be built upon and the other legions would follow.
Over the coming years, decades and centuries, the coral would embrace this entity and capture it for its own, giving it a natural beauty of colour and life, thus giving it purpose.
But for now, the fish kept swimming.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
