Fishing

I search, research
Drop anchor and wait with
Baited hook cast to seize the day
There’s action beyond what I can see
Though anxious, I wait patiently for
Opportunity to bite and run
In the struggle, break water and
Reach for the sun.

With dreams alive and vision true
I see a shimmer. I glimpse a view
Tension mounts. To the challenge, I rise
Reeling and reeling, but
I fail to surmise
The catch requires less drag and more line
Fighting, more fighting.
Give it more time

What’s this? A shimmer, I see in the stream
Ripples and more at the surface, my dream
But, down and deeper an unforeseen snag
I must keep control. I tighten the drag
No good. No time. A web-tangled line…
Misfortune dictates, “Cut bait”
Changing my tack, I search and research
Drop anchor and patiently wait... Fishing

In Your Eyes (From the Feminine Persepective)

A summer’s walk on painted sand
Along the beach at night
The salty air may bring a chill
But your arms will hold me tight

I feel you look into my soul
You see past my thin disguise
At once the world just fades away
Lost here in your eyes

What life had I before this night
Before your love’s sweet calling?
No shade of peril to hold me bound
My heart’s already fallen

Your kiss that lingers at my lips
Draws out a gentle sigh
You breathe life into my breast
Lost here in your eyes

In your embrace I find myself
Lost in your sweet eyes

Injustice

The sharpest sight may blind become if
Sense is left behind
When Wisdom's tongue becomes dumb,
No mercy shall we find

Justice too may often peak from
'round her tattered blinders
When scales are tipped, she can't but scream
As freedom slowly binds her

Layed To Rest

The distant sound of foot fall as
I trod a barren land
Diminished to an echo thru my heart

My search thru pain and tears has
Brought me to this tearful stand
Encompassed by the fears of a new start

Grieve I for this heart of love
Forever laid to rest
Mine emptiness, in part, a hardened shell

The struggle to surrender fights
Temptation to resist
Who will be the victor? Time will tell.
