"Tiger Fish"

"Tiger Fish"

He is a TigerFish, an ocean kitten
I am the water, and I am smitten
Perhaps he will swim over me
while the sun beats his colours down
in through my senses
ocean lenses
innocence comes around

From tidal pools and shallow water
a later bloomer, depths to charter
his world to spin, open and ripen
let him grow within, let his opals brighten

In waves he travels, a sun-marked rover
let the ocean turn, let it turn time over
when it's his turn, his own to bloom,
his oceans uncover, a sea with room

With space enough to hold him
in glass and golden
and water woven
and dream enfold him

He is a TigerFish, a later bloomer, an ocean kitten
I am the water, I have been smitten
Perhaps he will swim over me
while the sun beats his colours down
in through my senses
ocean lenses
innocence comes around
