Chinese Fishing Nets

Death hangs on the poles
At river banks.
The sun smeared smiles
Grow grim grins in the night.
Being loosened ,
Chinese fishing nets
Sink down with baits
To lure in to the fate.
Wide spread death does wait
Till the sudden lifts.
Wet joys dry, and wriggle
In breathless net.
At bottoms lie hidden nets
To snare when care slip.

 (Chinese Fishing Nets are common at river banks of Kerala.These are a kind of nets hung on poles.At night ,these are lowered and laid at the bottom of the river.In the morning.these are lifted up with fish)

    The irony of casting nets to capture death is very compelling, Fabiyas. What a thought-provoking poem! As one who enjoys fishing in the Gulf of Mexico where the oil spill killed so many creatures, this poem has special meaning to me. Yes, I can see this pertains to more than just fishing, but I can see it on more than one level. A new favorite poem for me! Love, Carolyn
