Fishing Trip

Calm black lake water
Hidden world lurking below
Children stare at poles

Short Fishing poem by Sharon Gulley| Details | |

The River

Rapid moving water streams
forest song sung melody 
peacefulness within me.

As he cast his line
through brown pipe smoke and fog,
Again, he sits and waits.

Pretty princesses
Dancing all around
Frolicking through fields
Very beautiful
Just like you!

Sky Down

     Sky Down

Hawk and fish on high

drop, dive, soar ends, ground rises

Emerge, struggle, stop

Going Fishing

I need to unwind
I need some sun on my skin
And some peace of mind
I got a cooler,
A fishing pole and a boat
I’m going fishing

Strange Uncle

If I could have but one wish
I would want back my pet fish.
For my uncle came to town
And in mother's dressing gown,
Served him on her favorite dish.

Short Fishing poem by Samuel Durant| Details | |


Why am I here? 
Why are  
the things I do 
so dear 
to me, 
and me alone? 
It's almost 
as if 
I'm not 
the only 
human being 
on this planet. 
A shocking revelation, indeed.

Dank Pants

A fisherman sat with line all lank
perched on crooked stool that soon sank
backside now all mud covered
his face an embarrassed red
off home he went with his pants all dank.

Deserted with his humour failing, 
Walks alone, emotions trailing,
Ripped and broken on the floor, 
A lover with a love no more.
Torn from it's cage and left in the dirt, 
His incompetent heart,

better butterfly's

she builds better butterfly's from the dust on rusting pipes
they fly in the starry sky while i cry
in a panic she paints them into a panoramic
but butterfly's recognize their own limited size
so they build their own chicken coop in my soup

Fishing Briefs

A clown caught
a tuna in the middle
of a pond in a park!

He says that the black
tuna was a very rare
species in the water world

With evidence collected
it is purported 
that the tuna was colorless!

It is I Teddy,
reporting in Sun City.

My Father's Boat

A seagull’s cry
Twilight fog deepening
A distant bell gong
The quiet rattle of chord against mast

A partial conversation soon lost
The skiff fading into shadow
A hot mug of chocolate
My fishing line over the side to pass the time

With comfy sweatshirt and watch cap
I remember
My Father’s boat

sitting on shore

Nice warm day
sitting on shore
with a line 
in the deep blue.
Sitting and seeing 
birds soar 
above the shore.
My heart is glad
as I enjoy
time with my lord
all alone .
I start to dream
of soaring so high above
with no care.
My line gets tight
as I engage
something from below the blue .

Be Careful what you Hook

  I once heard of a fisher Luciano,
  who sang bass as he played on his piano.
  Once he fished and cast his line
  by mistake hooked his behind
  since that day, when he plays he sings soprano.

My trip

Our trip

W e went up to Exmouth, it took us five days
I  nto hot furnace winds, the days were ablaze
N o relief was in sight for north we were bound
T here it is so rare that cool weather be found
E veryone goes there,  cause fish can be caught
R eports of good fishing make these places sought.

One-Hour Fishing Awe

One-Hour Fishing Awe 

She was only twelve.
She believed in elves.
And fishing genies,
Which wore bikinis.
Some drank martinis.

Early one fall,
She got a call.
Luck did befall.
Wonder enthralled.

Her granddad
That wore plaid.
Made her glad.

At sea…

changing sky

As I wake in the still of the morning
The sky greets me with her crimson kiss
With breakfast eaten
I board the boat 
Left tied to the dock
The previous night
And set out navigating
Across calm cool waters
As hours pass the sky awakes in a
Lucious ball of yellow
And by nightfall as I row in
Her  dark beauty  is breath-taking
As the moon moves in to swoon her

Short Fishing poem by Christopher Waters| Details | |


My parents always told me "Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach him to fish and he will eat forever" It always annoyed me. Have you ever tried fishing before? It's hard to catch a fish I have gone fishing for days at a time and never caught anything. So just give me a fish I'm hungry now and could starve to death trying to catch one.
