I talked with a salmon the other day
we had an interesting conversation
I asked why they do so little
with their life
besides traveling to the mating grounds
and traveling back to the birthing grounds
and then usually dieing after eggs are laid

she said that it may not seem like
salmon do little with their life
but really their lives have a lot to do with
the journey down and up the river
its not about accomplishing something
or being well-known and important
its about admiring the beauty in the journey
seeing the accomplishment in the small things

they have mating a birthing grounds
so far away from each other
so that their children can see
the beauty in the journey to the mating grounds
its so that their children can experience
what others have gone through
in the journey to the mating grounds

as she laid down to die
after laying her eggs
I asked her why she never tries
to do something more
she said her life was fulfilled
in the simple journey through the river
seeing all the wonderful things
and knowing her mother and father
went through the same things she did

then as she died
I wished I could be so happy
with something so simple
someday
