Dreams of Evolution
I can think of nothing sadder that a goldfish in a bowl…


Dreams of Evolution screened as a finalist at “Songs Interwoven of Lights” at the Queensland Poetry Festival, on Sunday 26 August as part of the 2012 QPF Filmmakers Challenge.

“I can think of nothing sadder than a goldfish in a bowl. Swimming in tight circles, such a lonely fishy soul…”

These are the opening lines of Dreams of Evolution, a poem that features in Kate Toon’s self-published poetry book Gone Dotty.

We’ve all pondered the existence of a goldfish in a bowl. Maybe this goldfish will help us ponder our own existence and encourage our own dreams of evolution to turn into reality.
