Bluestone Review, 2009

it’s really simplebait the hook-throw the line
no judgement
no remorse

in the silence
speak to our personal god
turn inward-listen sometimes
seek what we already are
when the line breaks
there are no tears
only laughter as
joy brings us power

when we land a catch
the power becomes
all the more
amazingly obvious

as we lose ourselves
the find ourselves
in the glory of the day
you think we are only fishing
