Trading places (string Haiku)

by Michael   Nov 9, 2018


Alien waters
a transformation takes place
Jekyll finned feline

Hormonal magic
switching her felinity
gills now breathe from male

mother and father
two separate life forms but
born from the same egg

natures miracles
fail not in her amazement
metamorphosis

*Inspired by the 'Blue Planet 2, the sheer mesmorising images of the 'Asian Sheepshead Wrasse fish'
changing from female to male and actually witnessed on camera*
