Frog and Fish : Steganography




Mory Keita 

There is a rainbow in my heart,
There is a mermaid in my life.
 she loves me and I love her.

There is dark in light,
There is light in dark.
They touch, but do not blend.

There is a queen in my life,
There is a rose in my heart,
More beautiful than sunset,
She is above earthly beauty.

Two lovers swim in the Nile,
A frog and a fish holding hands,
They swim in the blue ocean of life.
She loves him and he loves her.
But alas! frog is fogy and fish is fishy.




Key: i have colored the key words necessary to find out the story behind this poem.
doesn't this poem remind you a story in the bible?

thank you Tim

I am not even sure if this is stenography.

I'm not very 'up' on things Biblical - does this have something to do with Queen of Sheba? Or the Plagues of Egypt? That's all I've got...

Mory said...

You are close but it doesn't. it has to do with a great prophet in the bible. probably the greatest.

very lovely image,
your words are magical!

I assumed it was Moses. But it is certainly not stenography! Probably a bit of steganography comes into it though... And is the fogy a) an old man b) foggy or c) froggy? I love the picture and the poem.

Mory said...

Vivinfrace, You are right, but it is specifically the story of Moses and nefertari.

Quite lovely words here, even if I didn't "get" the message!

Mory your words are truly magical and I also did not know it was about Moses!
Nicely done!

Lovely story. Poor starcrossed lovers.
I'll have to look up the Moses and the queen reference

Like both the poem and the image, they work well together. I guessed, but didn't even come close. Good one.

Thank you very much for your generous comment. i had doubt that this was steganography. Though it is not, you comment are truly encouraging.

I thought of Moses because of the Nile reference. This is very lyrical.
