Koi Fish in the Pond
“Mabel, I want to have a pond in our garden.”
“Humm, a great idea, but what for, dear?”
“For having ‘yu’ and lotus in the pond.”
“The lotus flowers are elegant and symbolize purity. Why having ‘yu’ in the pond?”
“Well, ‘yu’ means fish, but ‘yu’ of a different word means wishes come true.”
“Now you got my head spinning.”
“Have many colors of koi, especially gold color.”
“Like the ones in Chinese or Japanese Garden?”
“Yes, I’ll order the koi from Caspian or Black Sea. They are the fast-growing koi.”
“Our ten-thousand wishes will fast come true also.”
