♫♫ Phil Collins - Too Many Fish In The Sea ♫♫

Fishmonger

Marsden Hartley

I have taken scales from off

The cheeks of the moon.

I have made fins from bluejays’ wings,

I have made eyes from damsons in the shadow.

I have taken flushes from the peachlips in the sun.

From all these I have made a fish of heaven for you,

Set it swimming on a young October sky.

I sit on the bank of the stream and watch

The grasses in amazement

As they turn to ashy gold.

Are the fishes from the rainbow

Still beautiful to you,

For whom they are made,

For whom I have set them,

Swimming?

Describe this place smell.

Antonio Gil Replied to Andi Saw 11 months, 2 weeks ago

Almost no smell at all. There was a good sea breeze coming from the Indic Ocean.

Great series again, Antonio. But when I read "fishmonger", I immediately thought about this song:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruNdU6bGE5E

Another fascinating glimpse into the lives these hard-working folks!
i'm wondering how they determine which fish belong to whom, or are they all considered community property......???
Wonderful subjects, compositions, edits, music & verse! Excellent package, as always, Amigo!

So glad there's no sense of smell with these images!
True sense of what it's like to be a fisherman! Mxx

They didn't smell bad. Perhaps due to the sea breeze. Thanks dear Mx
