Fishing With Mr. Wiffle ® - Poem by Ted Sheridan

Casting his artificial lure out on the surface of the water
The man envisions the depths of his surroundings and his being
Looking beneath the obvious ripples and turmoil of fishing
He reads the undercurrents and eddies of catching
It is there, standing on the water
Where he understands his full potential

    Went to the ocean.
    A few small fish at sunset
    Spirt all renewed

    Hey Ted, I actually did go salt water fishing yesterday (was off on Columbus Day) . Just snapper blues... but just seeing those gulls diving, the baitfish jumping, the sunset... God! I felt so alive.. so renewed..excited, yet relaxed...so part of the universe, yet so detached from everyday reality. Zen
