I think God made some creatures just because they’re sublime and surpass imagination. In warmer weather, our ornamental fish pond swirls with the vivid colors and patterns of Asian Koi, offering a silent invitation to stop and consider. Asian cultures find rich symbolism in the beautiful, graceful Koi — attributes such as loyalty, courage, unity, fidelity, and strength in times of adversity. Now the pond is layered in ice and the Koi rest near the bottom, dormant until their spring awakening.
