A WISH FOR FISH
A WISH FOR ALL FISH
Washed up on shores around the world
Already dead, a whale, a dolphin a shark,
All marine life is suffering, the situation
A yellow-tailed angelfish
flashed his tail at me.
His shimmering skin was all aglow,
as he wiggled his fins and waved hello....
Pointing To The Problems
earth day, emotions, fish,
POINTING TO THE PROBLEMS
Beat down with legal fees
Tied up with taxes;
Tripped up with mortgages;
Ripped off with student loans
Insulted with insurance

These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in...
Do you remember me
beauty, bereavement, eulogy, fish,
I do not know?
They walk silently along my hallways.
Floors littered with faded finery.
Do you remember my Granduer?
I had once been called the Queen of the sea.

when she looks at us in our fish bowl

that big mouth of hers,...
The Fisherwoman - For Contest
A desperate spinster, Jane took
strong measures the day she would cook
fresh trout. Her date bit
the barb left in it!
He truly was caught on her hook!
allegory, life, nature, fish,
The fish is a creature cold and wet
Hooked by line and trawled by net,
Easy to catch and yummy to eat
Fried in oil or seared by...
Diary of a Salmon
adventure, fish, humor, humorous,
Today I passed a shad,
on his way to Prince William Sound.
He protested that I go downstream.
But to the current he is bound.
fish, imagery, journey, life,
Through the water they glide,
an immense mosaic of millions of silvery fish
on their migratory run,
obeying a call immemorial,
a mystery of aquatic...
The Fisherman and the Mermaid
THE FISHERMAN AND THE MERMAID
A young fisherman berthed in Penzance
Went ashore one fine night to a dance
He woke up on his boat
With a mermaid afloat

You, skinny dipping,

fishing is a sport of supreme relaxation
beneath golden Sun with great anticipation
while warm water is quiet
fish feast on worm diet
THEY DON'T BITE LIKE THEY USED TO
fish, father, nostalgia, social, dad,
He sat there in his fav'rite chair, a blanket 'cross his lap
And covering his snow white hair was his old fishing cap.
From our Deck-Front in December
fish, absence, boat, culture, december,
our pink deck with a Jarra cocktail table-set
We sit awaiting sunset with an
‘Hawaiian absence’ of seagulls
As dusk comes with violet echoes
In A Melting World
animal, fish, nature, water,
The Inuit call the Narwhal the one that points to the sky,
Haiku - into the blue
blue, boat, fish, sea,
in the deep blue
the boat lay tilted to one side-
Sirens of the Ocean
fantasy, fish, ocean,
Under the ocean where King Neptune rules,
multiple species of fish form schools.
The most fantastical fish you'll ever see,
is a mermaid in her long-haired glory.
A pond sits in the glen
bright fish dashing about
casting silvery shadows
ducks chasing after them
eels making their way to sea
flying birds circling back and forth
A Fish's Life
I do not know?
Float some more
fish, adventure, peace, blue, sea,
The unceasing roar
Surf and coral,
hitting the shore
This underwater show
This blaze of colour,
roar of surf.... so
Coral reef home,
so many fish,
blue sea foam,
this is my wish............
My hovercraft is full of eels

I'll try to tell you without my usual cant
that all I wanted was to go sailing with
Sherry Saturday morning but I can't!
My hovercraft is full...
