Fish Tale - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

Every day we fish.
We cast our lures and our flies
into the rippling reservoir of life and wish
for a nibble.

Maybe we fish for a compliment,
for a single kind word, for a nod
of approval. For a lover's assent,
or for a day without rain.

Like any good fisherman,
we cast out and we wait.
We sit on the riverbank
and anticipate

the bounty of our catch,
the catch-of-the-day.
And we dream of stories to tell
of the one that got away.

    Are you baiting me? ((laughing, laughing))
    I so enjoyed this analogy...

    The One That Got Away

    Your scarlet letters lure,
    (you drag your mouth with mine)
    you drag me under deep waters,
    hooked, I hang on your every word;

    You drag me blindly upstream,
    hard lines pull against that current,
    hard against my better judgment,
    against the odds,

    almost to the point of no return.

    Sandra
