I need some sun on my skin
And some peace of mind

A fishing pole and a boat

Inviting.

And in mother's dressing gown,
Served him on her favorite dish.

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.
Went fishing for bass in the car pool.

At the end of the day-
                                         the West begins its rage

Una

There once was a shopkeeper called Una,
Whose bottom was getting rather lunar.
‘If fishing’s good for health,
‘I’ll reel tins from the shelf,’
She said as she caught a can of tuna.

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

Ah...
bemused,
bountiful,
belligerents. 
Covering caskets,
cocooning, cringing cracks
doubting, desolate, dodgers; 
forever fishing, finding fist,
that will always swim before they hit.

NET

                                          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

A FISHERMAN'S DOUBT

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!

Short Fishing poem by Merle Manu| Details | |

Cinnamon and Salt

Cinnamon and salt
Lemons and vinegar
Pepper and limes
     Fishing

Yielding
To
 the 
Breeze and 
Humming
  As the
Bobbin is
   skimming
 The surface

Unwinding and 
winding up 
 the line
