Posting amid crisis

In the Neurological ICU waiting room sets a large fish tank. Its innards are slightly darkened for the comfort of its citizens. There are five fish, variously sized and colored: silver, pale yellow, splotchy black and gray, dazzling gold and dull white. Artificial vegetation, one clump a surprising fuschia, sways among the expected greens. Odd sized pebbles and larger rocks cover the floor of this cube-shaped ocean. The fish mesmerize. Huge eyes stare, delicate fins wave, colorization amazes. The fish are a marvel of engineering and for a few minutes I find a corner of calm.
