Moon Jelly 2

Calmly, serenely the moon jelly floats:
	Its transparent umbrella-body,
	nearly invisible,
	undulates:
	four orange nodules in the center surround a mouth --
That's all there is:
	floating and eating.

How wonderful that such a simple thing lives.

How wonderful that life can be so simple:
	uncomplicated and unstressed.
The only pressure the reassuring pressure of the water.
