In subject matter, three of my most recent poems have drawn on creatures that live in or around water. See 

Conversation, which references ducks.

Tarantella, which might seem to be about spiders, but also mentions a fish.

red herring

Thematically, all these poems explores internal and external movement. “red herring”considers the pause of such movement; “Tarantella” the motion. Conversation describes the setting of an event, but hints at the ebb and flow to be found in relating.
