Pond Fish River Fish

There is a pond in the forest, deep enough for several fish. The fish are swimming around the perimeter of the pond. Around and around, always moving but never going anywhere.

Unbeknownst to the pond fish, there is a stream nearby. Playful rapids sloshing and swirling as the crystal water murmurs ever downstream.

Suddenly a fish leaps out of the river and into the pond. The pond fish are so startled! The river fish swims for a while with the pond fish. Then the river fish says, “Pond fish! You are swimming in this fine pond but did you know there is stream nearby with crystal water and sunshine through the tree branches! Come with me and see this whole other world you have been missing!” Then the river fish leaps out of the pond back to the stream, showing the way for the others.

In a little while, two or three of the pond fish gather their courage and their speed and they leap out of the pond, into the stream.

After those fish have gone, the remaining pond fish begin to swim again, around and around.
