Off the Hook

Off the Hook (about writing)

word watching

that’s what they do-

observing a line like

a fisherman watches a

moving line in inlet’s calm

is that one?

nah, just a nibbling thought

hmm…let’s cast over there

quiet…listen…look

that one pulls through a sandbar

dragging ideas slowly along

inspiration flies in like wild wind,

caresses the cheek with a quick kiss,

can slip away, too,

like a strong-willed fish

leaving the unlucky fisherman

scratching his head
