Clarity in Koi Diction

I have to say this in a way that people can understand.  Sometimes the water is like a page and the koi move across it and their motion is writing.  Their patterns are words.  Their beauty is a message.  And the watcher is the one who receives it.  And if you marvel, you are the one who heeds it.

Koi Sentences

If you were to grasp them with your hands, their muscles would slip and elude.  I grasp them in my hands with thoughts.  I grasp them with crayons and paint.  The crayon line that draws the contour catches the fish.  I make them be still.  But they swim nonetheless.
