Spewell Bluff a lovely place

Fishing, swimming, slower pace

The brine and rot of a fishing ship
Is smelt a hundred yards from shore
The scurvy laughs of the mates aboard
A thousand yards or more.

Drops on the river

Silver ripples spread-

Rust colors the bank

Remembering getting caught in a fall

shower while fishing on the Klamath River.

Way off the coast of Maine he is fishing

while soldiers he sent to war are dying;

and out in the desert blood is flowing

as he is busily catching some marlin.

So the gossips all say.

Whose bottom was getting rather lunar.

If fishings good for health,

Ill reel tins from the shelf,

Sea Sick

I wanted to go fishing in the ocean

Forgot the result of constant motion

You wouldn't believe

How much I heaved

Would give gold for a nausea potion

For the "Fishing" contest.

Unwelcome Dumb Wishfully





Covering caskets,

cocooning, cringing cracks

doubting, desolate, dodgers; 

forever fishing, finding fist,

that will always swim before they hit.

                                          Not means for fishing 		
                                        Not the net of mosquito

"The Bass"

There was a young man who loved fishing,

And left his young wife alone wishing-

     That a gentleman of class,

     would release her at last,

from the lips of the bass she'd been kissing!

june 5 2006

The ground is turning 

and I'm still yearning 

and I all I want is you

and I hope you want me too

I'm still wishing 

soon maybe I'll be done fishing 

Cause you'll be

that right fish in the sea

From a low, wind-swept bridge almost color beige,

I toss my fishing cane made in Anchorage,

hoping to catch some fish soon...

as I scorch in the hot noon;

if I failed again, it would increase my rage!

Cinnamon and Salt

Cinnamon and salt

Lemons and vinegar

Pepper and limes

 The surface

Unwinding and 

winding up

The Lesser of Two Evils

Said a fish about to die:

I pray to God I do not fry.

It isn't likely that you will

said a fellow fish nearby.

That roar above is a fishing mill.

You'll be flash frozen, I hear tell.

Not hot at all, but cold as hell.

Short Fishing poem by Suzanne Delaney| Details |

Spider Haiku

Tiny spider web
Catches this fallen blossom
Wrong prey to pounce on.

Spider knits a web
Not unlike a fishing net
To capture dewdrops.

Sticky, woven web
Yet, spider is never caught
Familiar paths

Suzanne Delaney

Short Fishing poem by Sneha RV The literature lover| Details |

Four Friends

Trekked to Terry Town
Tried tying their torn tents
Tripped to the tall tree ....

Fighting for french fries	
Four frantic friends followed..
Flew flags, found fun fishing
Finally, fell flat for foul fish !

Short Fishing poem by Judy Konos| Details |

Honest Fishing

That darn fish hook landed in my hand  

snagged me in the face wrapped round again 

I only fish for fun 

and when the day is done 

My fish tale braggin comes from a can
